    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.

    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.

    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.

    I can multitask

    Honoring the dead does not mean stifling discussion.

    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)

    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.

    +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.

    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.

    I can only hope for 2 senerios:

    1. Our country wakes up and stops this PC Bullcr*p. It's going to destroy our nation. You are correct this officer probably would have been investigated if he had shot that animal.

    2. Our nation breaks into 2 different nations, 1 conservative and the other liberal. That's the only future I see...RIP officer...
    I vote for #1. I really wish this country could get into the mindset it was about 40 years ago.

    That happened in the county next to mine. We get alot of loose cattle calls, and have made jokes about getting the grill ready, barbecue sauce, etc, but it will be a while before we make those jokes again. I think many would be truly suprised just how dumb those animals are. One of the oil rigs I do security for had alot of cattle. 3 would routinely walk up to the guard shack and eat the plastic bins we used to hold the fuel cans, and one even chewed through the extension cord. I'd have to run them off several times a shift, actually throwing and hitting them with my batton. From what it sounds, most likely, the cattle, although injured, was walking around. We usually just stay in the car and hit the siren and air horn and drive them back into their property.

    RIP.
