Woman Hurt In Wayward Cow Attack

Police say a central Pennsylvania woman had to be taken to a hospital after she was knocked down by a cow she tried to shoo off the road.

Southern Regional Police say the woman encountered a cow standing in the road Tuesday night in Conestoga Township, Lancaster County. Fearing the cow would be struck by another motorist, Officer Dianne Carter says the woman stopped her car and tried to herd the cow off the road.

But Carter tells the Intelligencer Journal/Lancaster New Era the cow turned on the good Samaritan, headbutting her in the abdomen and knocking her down.
