Police Shoot Confused Cow 24 Times Because it “Caused a Traffic Concern”


CBS News

An incident involving a runaway cow that was pursued and shot 24 times by the Abbotsford Police Department is now being investigated.

Police shot and killed the renegade cow shortly after 10 a.m. PT on Sunday, after it was spotted running across some of the busiest roads in the city. T

he cow was first spotted near Whatcom and South Parallel roads in Abbotsford, and soon made its way onto Highway 1, darting into oncoming traffic.

“You have a family in a vehicle that strikes this animal or swerves to miss it and goes off road, you have huge implications,” said Const. Paul Walker.

Police say it wandered around the city for about 30 minutes, and ended up near the busy intersection of Sumas Way near South Fraser Way.

“All attempts during that 30 minute window were unsuccessful to get somebody or some group to come and assist us,” said Walker.

“Officers and our road supervisor made the decision in the interest of public safety to put down the animal.”
