And they laugh at me when I tell the story of how I had to run screaming from the cow that tried to eat me.
A 70-year-old man in Florida was working on his fence Saturday when he was attacked by a cow.
This is why I don’t feel so bad about eating them. They’re dangerous man-eaters.
Poor Oscar Wilcox started screaming, alerting his wife, who came out in her truck and began ramming the cow (apparently she wasn’t concerned that she just might hit her husband instead, but let’s not digress).
Wilcox had already shot the cow once with his .22 pistol, which apparently just made Jason the Cow more angry. So after the wife hits the thing with the truck – which didn’t work – she picked up the gun her husband dropped on account of a cow trying to eat him and starting shooting it in the face.
And THAT didn’t even stop the cow.
Finally the thing was contained – undead – in a nearby pasture, while the rancher was flown to a hospital, where he was listen in critical condition Tuesday. Apparently this wasn’t the first time it attacked someone.
I don’t know about you, but the first time one of my cows attacks me would be the last. That thing would be on the dinner table about six hours later.
