Cow chased over a cliff by dogs...

6 July 2012

You may have heard an item in the news recently about a cow that was chased over a cliff in Cornwall by two dogs. The cow fell 20 feet, and although very fortunately it was unharmed, it was then attacked by the dogs.

The cow was collected by the owner, a local farmer, who said he would have considered shooting the dogs had he been present.
