Milking cow shot dead by police 'while trying to escape'

Angus Cooke

Common sense is a declining commodity...

So some cows have escaped near a busy road - at most, police marksmen in two cars armed with tranquiliser guns. Job done.

God knows how many armed police, 20 cars, a helicopter and a terrified - soon to be dead - cow. Nice work Mr Plod. I only pray the Northumbria police never have to deal with a madman wielding a machine gun. The exam board marking the papers for some police applicants really need to tighten up QA on the finer colouring-in questions.
