Cows Really Can Fly

Postby sox 06 » Tue Nov 06, 2007 3:42 pm

Well, sort of :-B
MANSON, Wash. - Charles and Linda Everson were driving back to their hotel when their minivan was struck by a falling object - a 594 pound cow.

The Eversons were unhurt but the cow, which had fallen off a cliff, had to be euthanized.

The year-old cow fell about 197 feet from the cliff and landed on the hood of the couple's minivan, causing heavy damage.

A Chelan County fire chief, Arnold Baker, said the couple missed being killed by a matter of centimetres in the accident Sunday on a highway near Manson.

The Eversons, visiting the area from their home in Westland, Mich., to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, were checked at Lake Chelan Community Hospital as a precaution.

Everson, 49, said he didn't see the cow falling and didn't know what happened until afterward.

He said he kept repeating: "I don't believe this. I don't believe this."

I would have thought a 594 lb cow would have caused more damage than that. :-b

Nice. :-b

Also, it probably just barely even landed on the front of it. That thing would be demolished had it hit it in the windshield.

Do they test cars for top impact crash safety ratings? :-b

I bet someone is now going to sue because car companies don't test their vehicles withstanding impact from a 600 lb cow falling off a cliff.
