Interesting Bits : Getting the Cow in

Getting the Cow inLast week the story that caught our eyes was an interesting piece, by Kevin Lalah, as he continued his roving around the country.

"They pushed even harder, grimacing with the effort. But the cow still just would not budge. A crowd had now gathered to witness the spectacle as the men struggled to get the stubborn cow into the back of the truck. "

The above excerpt is from the amusing article, and the picture of the men trying to get a cow into a truck makes it a great read.
