Cranky Cow Dead, Nobody Charged

At the California State Fair this week, a cow was shot and killed. Apparently the pregnant heifer got out of its enclosure and started running loose on the grounds. This was happening before the fair even opened for the day.

So, a UC Davis Vet decided that this was one anti-social cow and gave orders to execute it.

Now I’ve seen cows ridden, roped, wrestled, and BBQ’d and I’ve never seen one that was too happy with people. What I want to know is where was this cow’s owner, where was a cowboy when one was needed, didn’t anyone have a horse and a rope?

John Wayne could have handled the situation. Maybe the Vet was low on beef. Sacramento has been known as a “Cow Town” for a long time, maybe it’s time to find a new insult.
