...the day didn't end so well for Bossy.
The noise apparently frightened the cow and she bolted for the corral, injuring one spectator during her escape attempt...the cow ran to the Woods and Jackson Streets area. Officers tried to contain the bovine until its owner could arrive.
West Memphis Police Department Detective Ken Mitchell said the cow appeared to be very agitated.
"The cow made its way to Elizabeth Lane when the owner arrived," Mitchell said.
Several families with children live in the area.
Again officers tried to contain the animal but it kept charging officers while the owner tried to get the cow under his control.
When it charged officers a third time, police had to kill the animal.
Just awesome. The classic small-town news story, Cow loose downtown, but with a decidedly Tarantino-ish twenty-first century edge: cops calmly execute cow after numerous warnings. Take that, cow!
