Strange stories about cows
Cows just do what they do; they stand in the middle of the field, pinching grass and mooing. But it happens that they also perform other actions that make us stop and say: “What ?!” Here are a few stories about cows - strange, but truthful.
I'm very well. You're fine. But what about the cow?
One morning in January 2005, traffic was paralyzed on the 4th highway near Debari (Florida, USA). The reason: a cow was standing in a swamp near the road ... and she seemed to be sinking. Interested drivers called a road patrol, who quickly decided that the cow was not in danger, but simply grazing in a quagmire with a depth of 60 centimeters. The policemen left, but the calls of agitated eyewitnesses continued to pester them, so they were forced to return and put a sign on the road, the inscription on which read: “The cow is fine.” Shortly after the police left, the cow went home ... and the sign remained.
Now motorists really did not understand: which cow was fine? Was it some kind of religious message or news of an event about which they had not heard? These were some questionsroad patrols in the next few hours. And as more and more drivers slowed down to find a non-existent cow, the traffic jam became even greater. The police eventually returned and removed the sign.
In December 2009, a resident of England returned home to Bledon (Somerset, England) and found a broken slate in the yard and serious damage to the roof of the house. The woman decided that someone tried to get into the house, and called the police, who assessed the extent of the damage and went to the neighbors to find out if they had not seen anyone suspicious. William de Coty, a teenager who lived next door, saw what had happened. He looked out his window on the second floor and saw a cow standing on the sloping roof of a woman’s house. The sight was so strange that he even took a photo. The police decided that the cow must have climbed onto the roof in its lowest part - an impressive two meters from the ground - and then walked along it for several minutes, broke several tiles and jumped to the ground.
The moo is here, the roar is there
Jack Macdonald had a cow. Her name was Apple (apple in English - “apple”; because she liked to eat apples from the tree).One day, in 2008, a bear strolled into the Epl residence in Higine (Colorado, USA) and climbed onto a cow's favorite apple tree. Apl approached the tree and began to moo threateningly at the invader. The bear came down to the ground, and the animals made a real showdown - they even had their foreheads together for a while. As a result, Apple drove out the bear with its menacing mooing. MacDonald described the confrontation as a “rather jolly sight.”
Fire in the hole
A Dutch veterinarian was fined 600 guilders (approximately $ 240) for inciting a fire that destroyed a farm near the town of Lichtenwurd. The veterinarian tried to demonstrate to the farmer that his cows were emitting too much gas, and to confirm his words, he used a lighter to set fire to a bunch of cow. The cow, according to newspaper notes, turned into a “four-legged flamethrower” and ran around in panic, setting fire to haystacks. A burning cow (which, surprisingly, remained intact) was the cause of damage of more than $ 80 thousand.
Jerry Lynn Davis' house must have a very good taste. In 2009, one of his neighbor's cows peeked over the fence of Davis's residence in Rogersville (Tennessee, USA) and began to lick the house. She licked the paint off the walls, tore off the boards, smashed the window and pulled down the drain - and all this with her tongue.The owner of the cow agreed to move the fence a little further, and Davis tried to get his insurance company to cover the losses (which exceeded $ 100), but was refused because his insurance did not cover the “cow's actions”.
