How Now Brown Cow
This is not a funny story. In fact, it is rather tragic – both for the cow and the human. That didn’t stop me from cracking up when I read the first few paragraphs though.
A recent car accident resulting in the death of a cow has finally convinced the Goodyear City Council to take action on a large-animal ordinance that has been postponed since July.
The crash occurred about 6 a.m. Oct. 5 about two miles south of Queen Creek Road, said Paul Marzocca, a Goodyear police commander.
The motorist, Derek Knowlton, told officers that while he was driving in the area, he spotted a white cow in the roadway and swerved to miss the animal.
However, Knowlton did not see a brown cow standing next to the white cow and struck and killed the brown animal.
Why does it take a tragedy like this to moove someone to fix a problem?
