Mad Cow Cannot Bear It Any More

Every now and then a Loyal Reader emails us something that must be repeated. So with a tip of the hat to “Rick” we give you this:


 Kettle Valley , British Columbia- Every year they have to deal with some pretty weird stuff. This year a bear had been bothering the herd and I guess enough was enough.

Read on…

A black bear tried to cut through a pasture and got too close to the cow herd. This turned out to be a very big mistake on his part.

The blonde and white Simmental cow known as "I-12" went right for him. She is a very good cow, a very attentive mother and about 12 years old. She's in her prime and knows that bears are bad news.
She tried her best to mash him into the ground with her large head.
The bear is biting I-12's leg and clawing her face but she is not giving up. All the cows were bawling, the bear was squealing, the calves were running around with their tails in the air.
A younger cow, "R-55", an Angus-Cross, tries to help her out as best she can. It is an incredible sight to see two cows team up to stomp the bear to death.

The calving records of both cows who are so aggressive in these photos show they are both good, calm cows  and have given  no troubles whatsoever. It should be noted that they have a very distinct dislike of bears.

Finally, the bear broke free and decided to un-ass the area.

“I-12” recovered from her wounds. Neither hide nor hair of the bear was ever seen again.
