This whole incident really pissed me off.
I grew up on a farm. Going to the fair was one of the highlights of my summer. Any farm kid would know what to do or not do around a lose pregnant cow Bring it some FOOD and water and back off...she will calm down..eventually.
I can not find the first article that appeared on the internet. But I was watching the news when this story first broke and there is something amis.This article above says that the tranqulizer gun malfunctioned. But what was said at the beginning when I saw it was that they did not want to use the tranquilizer gun because they were afraid it would kill the calf!
And then they chase the poor dear with a SUV and KILL IT AND THE CALF with 11 bullets to the STOMACH!
We need some raw, organic, pro animal fairs...no deep fried twinkies, Alligator kabobs, deep-fried scorpions, or dead pregnant cows needed...sigh..
