My friend and producer extraordinaire Holly Cerelli sent me this true story off the wires...
She thinks someone was trying to recreate the John Cleese Castle Scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
I think it was a defiant cow refusing to accept it couldn't fly.
What do you think?
Cow Falls Off Cliff, Crashes Onto Van on Highway
Tuesday, November 06, 2007
MANSON, Wash. — Charles and Linda Everson were driving back to their hotel when their minivan was struck by a falling object — a 600-pound cow.
The Eversons were unhurt but the cow, which had fallen off a cliff, had to be euthanized.
The year-old cow fell about 200 feet from the cliff and landed on the hood of the couple's minivan, causing heavy damage.
A Chelan County fire chief, Arnold Baker, said the couple missed being killed by a matter of inches in the accident Sunday on a highway near Manson. The Eversons, visiting the area from their home in Westland, Mich., to celebrate their first wedding anniversary, were checked at Lake Chelan Community Hospital as a precaution.
Everson, 49, said he didn't see the cow falling and didn't know what happened until afterward. He said he kept repeating: "I don't believe this. I don't believe this."
