Holy Cow!

Is it a bird? is it a plane? no its just a run of the mill sky diving cow! I read this amazing story recently about a cow plummeted about 200ft from the sky and landed on the bonnet of a couples minivan as they were driving down the road.

Charles Everson, Jr and his wife Linda were driving back from a church service near Manson, in Washington state, when the cow incident occurred. As they drove beneath a cliff, The cow toppled over the edge, plunged 200ft, and smashed into the bonnet of their minivan.
Everson told local newspaper The Wenatchee World: 'It was “bam”- you just saw something come down and hit the hood.'
'I'm like, “I don't believe this, I don't believe this, I don't believe this,”' he added.
The 600lb cow, who was put down at the scene, was identified as Michelle the Cow, a cow owned by Rockin A Rodeo Bulls. Michelle the cow had been at a breeding facility, but had escaped – only for her dreams of freedom to end up nose-diving off a cliff and being dashed on a minivan.
Michelle's owner, Rena Albertson, paid tribute to Michelle: 'She is very missed and I have yet to figure out how to tell our children what happened to her.'

It's amazing that the couple both were ok now they have such good story to tell however it was a very sad day for the cow, maybe we are going to need to start strapping parachute's on them.
