Udderly Foolish

March 6, 2008 - Bill Speer
Some stories would probably be better part of "Ripley's Believe It or Not" than on the pages of a newspaper. The below encounter would probably have qualified as one of them. Trust me, I wouldn't steer you wrong.

Last month an Alpena police officer discharged his weapon close to a city recreational area after a run in with a Mad Cow.

No, that is not a typo. Apparently the cow was in a fo(w)l MOOd at the time and when the officer arrived on the scene, decided to show him where the beef was.

"It wouldn't cooperate and was very aggressive," Deputy Police Chief Kim Miller told the newspaper.

Hmmm. Sounds like this cow was rather bullish with the police officer.

"Basically for the safety of everyone around there, there was no other way to take care of it," Miller said, describing how the police officer had to put four slugs into the cow to bring it down.

I wish I could tell you this was all made up but it wasn't.

And that, my friends, is udderly foolish.
