tallguy what have you done?

We’ve heard of mad cow, but this is ridiculous.

A man in England was killed by rampaging cows – making it the second death by bovine in the country in as many weeks.

Malcolm Flynn, 72, from Carlisle, was killed after being charged by cows, according to the Guardian.

The “tragic incident” occurred as Flynn was strolling near Thirlwall Castle in Northumberland on the morning of September 11. A week earlier, the Guardian reports a man named Dave Clark died after he was injured by cows while walking near Richmond, North Yorkshire.

“My thoughts are with Malcolm’s family and friends at this time as they come to terms with the loss of a loved one in what was a shocking and tragic incident,” Jane Fairlamb, the deputy chief inspector, told the paper. “Our investigation is very much ongoing and we have already spoken to a number of witnesses, however, we are still trying to trace a number of people who were in the area at the time who we haven’t yet spoken to, and think could greatly assist our inquiries.”

Not to add to the insensitivity of the situation but was it mad cow disease? Covid didn't get him but the cows did. How many cows did the authorities interview?

It was cold recently, maybe they were running, trying to keep warm. Especially if they were fiesian.

Happens a lot.

People assume public right of way means they are safe to walk through fields without any implications.

There are restrictions on what animals farmers can keep in such fields but people dog walking in fields with cows nursing calves always triggers several of these incidents reported in my local paper a year.

Plus a lot of these walkers are elderly and frail and can't run when crowded by a herd of curious cows, get knocked and then trodden on.

Recently 2 people were killed by a domesticated water buffalo bred to make milk for mozzarella.

Hi solium! I was just trying to lighten up a bad situation, I wasn't trying to be insensitive.

Thing is, they are "domesticated" animals, and are not scared of people, like most animals are.

They tend to go towards people rather than away.

Several tons of beef heading towards you at speed can be pretty scary, actually.

I didn't even know cows could run much less stampede. All I've ever seen them do is stand in place and poop.

I remember my brother telling.me, years ago, that he and a friend had been out boozing. They were naturally drunk. It was pitch black. They decided to take a short cut across a field. They kept falling over things - cows that were lying down asleep!

This isn’t as rare an event as people may think. I grew up near a farm, even though we lived only 12 miles from the centre of London and as children we were cautious when approaching cows because we knew how unpredictable they could be. One of my uncles at the time was chased by a grumpy cow and had to jump over a hedge to escape - which greatly amused us.
