You Can’t Stop This Cow, You Can Only Hope To Contain Her

Everyone loves animals here, and Chris Hardwick himself provided the voice of Otis on “Back to the Barnyard,” so how about the story of the Unkillable Cow who attacked a guy on his farm?
The Fort Pierce Tribune reports that 70-year-old Oscar Wilcox of Port St. Lucie, Florida was fixing a fence in the pasture when the cow went after him. Wilcox shot the cow. It kept attacking. He dropped the gun, a .22, and that’s when his wife Rose came to the rescue, driving up in her truck and ramming the cow several times to get her away from Oscar. Rose then took the gun and shot the cow in the face, which repelled but didn’t kill the cow. Oscar ended up in critical condition; his wife says the cow has “always been nasty.”
And, apparently, invincible. That’s one tough cow.
