An eight hundred pound cow competing at the Cowlitz County Fairgrounds in Longview, Washington managed to escape its captors initiating a police chase that lead to the hospitalization of one officer and damage to several police patrol vehicles (archived). Police tazered the 2/5th ton contender for "most spirited" animal before fatally shooting it. Local media reports the cow's owner was injured declining to discuss circumstances of the farmer's injuries. Last November police in neighboring Idaho killed a bull and its owner after the bull was mauled by a Subaru that failed to yield to the bull as required by law. Peace in our time.
