Holy cow! There's cows all over the place today

In Cincinnati, Ohio, searchers on the ground and in a sheriff's department helicopter Monday were looking for an Angus steer that postponed its date with a slaughterhouse by bolting out a gate that had been inadvertently left open. In Australia, police were forced to shoot a cow which was discovered toddling along a major motorway near the town of Nerang, 43 miles south of Brisbane, after it escaped from a nearby property. In Indonesia, a Boeing 737 was landing at Merauke airport in southwest Papua when it hit a calf which was running across the runway. The plane suffered damage to its left engine but no one was injured. The report did not say if the calf was killed. A Pennsylvania man has been sentenced to two years probation and 50 hours of community service for mailing a bloody cow's head to his wife's lover. In Quasqueton, Iowa, Keith Franck got an unexpected surprise when his cow gave birth to rare triplets. Triplets occur about once in 100,000 births among cows.
