Cow leaps fence and crushes hood of car

August 15, 2011 – STAFFORDSHIRE, UK – The frightened Friesian has written off Robert’s Citroen C5 after denting the bonnet and breaking a wheel after bounding onto the busy road. Stunned police later breath-tested Robert after he called 999 to report the collision. It is understood the cow which died at the scene had been trying to escape from a farmer when it jumped into the road on the outskirts of Leek, Staffs. Robert escaped with cuts and bruises despite skidding almost 80 yards and ending up on the wrong side of the road as he tried to stop. The 24-year-old said: “I am now looking out for low-flying cows when I am driving.” Safety officer Robert, of Barlaston, Staffs, said: “I was driving along when a cow jumped out and landed on my bonnet.”It had hurdled a three-foot high fence and hit the front of my car. “I had no time to brake and my car veered to the other side of the road. “I was very lucky that nothing was coming in the opposite direction. “The police were very nice about everything, although I don’t think they could quite believe it either. Bob Lee, who retired from Staffordshire Ambulance Service after 30 years dealing with emergencies, said: “I have heard of someone being trampled by a cow, but never a cow jumping over a fence and landing on a car.” Farmer Clive Langford-Mycock believes the cow must have been very frightened to have jumped the fence during last weekend’s incident. “Something must have happened to frighten the cow. Possible causes could be thunder or lightning, low-flying aircraft or one of those stupid Chinese lanterns. –Telegraph

    This is a very common problem in Australia and most likely the U.S.

    In some parts of Indonesia. If a truck hits and kills a water buffalo the owner will demand $ 5,000 in compensation. If a truck hits and kills a child the parents will demand $ 1,000. You can get another child in 9 months. Water buffalo’s are virtually irreplaceable.
