Re: A cow is actually quite dangerous
"Last year 2262 cattle-caused injuries were reported in NZ. Even sheep caused 1500 or so injuries."
No, a cow is not dangerous, unless you're stupid enough to hand over some grass plus your fingers to it , as it's not really clever at making the distinction.
No-one should ever have the need to shoot a cow.
Want it no to walk on your toes ? move away from its path. Want to force it back to the barn ? Use a stick.
End of the problem.
I have wandering cows every single week on my roads, and fortunately, there's no lunatic copper here stupid enough to shoot them, with or without an helicopter.
