Killer cow fails in suicide mission

Killer cows

Killer cows, the subject of one of Whaleoil’s national security and personal safety awareness projects, have tried to strike another blow against New Zealand.

A group of tourists crashed into a cow in King Country early this morning.

None of the four men in the car were injured after the crash on State Highway 3 near Te Kuiti, but Northern Fire Communications shift manager Scott Osmond said the cow died as a result.

“There were no significant injuries,” he said.

“They were all a bit lucky, except for the cow.”

Te Kuiti Fire Brigade deputy chief fire officer Phil New said the group were heading to Taupo from Waitomo when they hit the cow after it walked onto the road.

“They never would’ve seen it. They were a bit shaken up afterwards,” he said.

It was reported that the car was written off after the crash.

They are clearly aiming to damage our tourism industry, but it appears that apart from a useless car, this particular suicide mission didn’t create the amount of terror that CowSIS had hoped.
