Cow Tipping Pays Back

I admit I’m not the most sophisticated dog out there. I’m not the type to beg at parties where cocktails and hors d’oeuvres are served. In reality, I’m more of a chips and salsa kind of beggar.

Inevitably at these get togethers, some big lug will talk about college and how they used to go cow tipping. It was never a question of whether they did it, because they did, but it always made me wonder why. I never got an answer.

It seems to me the following story is the rooster coming home to roost.

BOULDER, Colo. – A woman escaped serious injury and refused medical treatment after a cow knocked her down and walked on her legs. Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks ranger Pete Taylor said the woman was riding her bicycle along the South Boulder Creek Trail on Monday when she encountered the cow and stopped to let the animal cross.

Instead, the cow knocked the woman over and stepped on her legs.

The cow had left the area by the time rangers arrived, but other people warned fellow bikers and hikers on the trail about the animal.

Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance vice president Jason Vogel called the incident “odd, rare and random.”

I’d have to agree…it’s not everyday a hamburger knocks a lady off her bike.


Got something to say?
