Woman in her 30s is airlifted to hospital after being attacked by a COW

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Spotted by TBH in The Daily Mail:

South Wales Police read [sic]: ‘At around 3pm yesterday, emergency services were called to a farm in Southgate, Swansea, where a woman, reportedly in her 30s, had been struck by a cow. She was airlifted to University Hospital of Wales where she is being treated for her injuries.’

It is not known what happened to the cow, though there are some unconfirmed reports that it was shot.

That’s not much of a sanction, given what happens to most cattle.

The Gower commons are traditionally grazed by local commoners’ animals. It is legal in the area and considered to be an essential part of the farm economy of the Gower Peninsula area, as well as being helpful to maintain natural habitats.

That’s true! We were on holiday there a few years ago. They don’t seem to bother with fences and some sheep sauntered off their field and lay down in the middle of the road, luckily they moved on after a minute or two.

And now, some sensible advice they should print on the back of every tin of dog food:

Pennard Community Council warns on its website that people in the area should ‘be aware’ of grazing farm animals on the commons and should follow these precautions:
Keep dogs on a leash whenever near grazing animals, unless animals chase the dog, then just let go of the dog;
Keep young children under close parental control;
Do not come between cows and their calves;
Observe the presence of a bull (or bulls) and do not go between them and the cows;
Do not approach within 5m of grazing cattle;
Do not walk between closely assembled grazing animals.
