    Either way the actual deed wouldn't be the problem. The problem would come from tree-huggers. "What do you mean he shot the cow? He should have called a veterinarian to come help the cow and closed the road until the cow was OK!"
    One guy I knew used a 22 magnum rifle to slaughter all kinds of meat animals, the one thing the rifle allows is getting the muzzle where it needs to be without YOU getting close enough to the animal to be harmed, or less likely of being harmed anyway.

    I guess they should put large animals and how dangerous they are in the same required training class with ag chemicals, lots of people do not have nearly enough respect for a large scared animal made mostly of muscle, even a deer can and will kill you, and there is a lot less weight and muscle there than a cow has.

      Instead of talking about tree-huggers, perhaps we should honor the dead.

      RIP Officer.

        +1. From experience, a .223 barely does any damage to cows, let alone an anemic pistol bullet. A well placed slug will do the trick, but even that has to be properly placed on those monsters.

        I've seen wounded cows charge at officers before, even with a dozen .40's in them.

        RIP brother.

          You know, suddenly the Cow’s in LE jokes we toss around here are no longer funny. RIP Officer

              We had a Deputy who was pretty badly injured after he was stomped on by a cow. The attack was relentless and luckily his partner scared it off when he shot at it (and missed).

              Cows are actually more aggressive than bulls in many instances.


              RIP Deputy.

                My brother in law is a dairy farmer....................he has been hurt numerous times by the cows....................and only a couple times by the bulls (because he is more careful around then)
                Since some people need to be told by notes in crayon .......Don't PM me with without prior permission. If you can't discuss the situation in the open forum ----it must not be that important

                  I can multitask

                  Honoring the dead does not mean stifling discussion.

                    Same here too. First thought was how often we make jokes about the cows. Second thought was the suffering the officer's family and friends are enduring. My heart goes out to them.

                      RIP deputy.

                      Being attacked by a cow is scary as shet! I still have a scar by my left ear from when I was in the 5th grade. It's much harder to see now but it's still there. Also got some fractured ribs from it.
                      When the cow lowered it's head I grabbed her by the horns and made a futile attempt to push her away. The next thing I know I was being tossed around and holding on for dear life. Then the cow stopped and pushed me into the fence which is where I got the scar and the fractured ribs.
                      That following weekend the cow was taken to the butcher. As for shooting a cow. I remember my dad using a .308 rifle just several feet away from it. The first shot apparently missed the desired spot and just ****ed her off. It was his hunting rifle and he had a scope on it. The second shot got her between the eyes and she fell like a ton of bricks. DRT!
                      Talk about eating good... nothing like a freezer full of hamburger, steaks and roasts etc.

                        A guy I know grew up on a farm and said that they used a .22 rifle to put down cows. One shot every time, right where a X intersects from the ears to eyes.
