Nocturnal cow attacks car
A cow left to wander on a cold night attacked a car while walking along a country road near the town of Heimbach in North Rhine-Westphalia on Saturday night.
According to the police report, the cow had decided to cross the road, forcing two cars to stop. Suddenly confronted, the cow went on the attack, running past one car before jumping half on to the second.
Once it had successfully smashed the hood of the vehicle with its front hooves, the cow fled into a nearby forest.
Despite an immediate attempt to capture the animal, the cow evaded the police until Sunday morning, when it was returned to its owner.
The 36-year-old driver of the car escaped unharmed, though shaken.
