That cow isn’t mad — it’s furious

From Ananova:

runaway cow has demolished two police cars in Austria.

Officers used the vehicles to set up a roadblock after the animal escaped from a slaughterhouse in Graz.

It ran into a car park, chased shoppers and then attempted to head out on to the road.

The animal charged into the vehicles which had been set up at the car park entrance.

Police caught the cow with a rope as it settled down on top of one of the flattened cars.

It was then led back to the slaughterhouse.
