    Another reason not to go mountain biking

    As if you really need another reason:

    http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090120/...w_tips_woman_1

    BOULDER, Colo. A woman escaped serious injury and refused medical treatment after a cow knocked her down and walked on her legs. Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks ranger Pete Taylor said the woman was riding her bicycle along the South Boulder Creek Trail on Monday when she encountered the cow and stopped to let the animal cross.

    Instead, the cow knocked the woman over and stepped on her legs.

    Taylor said the woman wasn't seriously hurt. Her name was not released.

    The cow had left the area by the time rangers arrived, but other people warned fellow bikers and hikers on the trail about the animal.

    Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance vice president Jason Vogel called the incident "odd, rare and random."

    Cow knocks over woman on bike, steps on her legs

    BOULDER, Colo. (AP) -- A woman escaped serious injury and refused medical treatment after a cow knocked her down and walked on her legs. Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks ranger Pete Taylor said the woman was riding her bicycle along the South Boulder Creek Trail on Monday when she encountered the cow and stopped to let the animal cross.

    Instead, the cow knocked the woman over and stepped on her legs.

    Taylor said the woman wasn't seriously hurt. Her name was not released.

    The cow had left the area by the time rangers arrived, but other people warned fellow bikers and hikers on the trail about the animal.

    This would never happen in Ohio because we keep our livestock on things called "farms".:D

    I'm thinking "great minds think alike".

    P.s. If I didn't spell check, I would have beat your post by a few seconds.

    It would sound kind of exciting if someone were trampled by an elk, or butted by a mountain goat. But to be walked upon by a cow is downright humiliating.

    Our local trail used to go throguh a fenced area with gates and horses inside.

    Folks would illegally feed the horses sweets and the like. My wife and I were walking through the area when a horse came up to her, pushing his? nose into her looking for sweets and pushing her over in the process, then walking directly over her, missing her completely, except for one bruise.

    It was DARNED scary. We ended up in the emergency room.

    Sorry, but if it would have happened to me I would have reported it as a mountain lion attack.

    We humans tend to have an inflated view of ourselves. Sounds like this cow was simply making a statement. As I'm sure many others that post here have experienced, my youth was filled with lots of "chores" that included feeding, herding, and cleaning out stalls of manure. Cows are large animals and we're fortunate that in general their disposition is so mild. Which reminds me of the time I asked a breeder/owner of Belgian work horses if they were gentle. He looked at me like I was from another planet and said, "At that size, don't you think they'd have to be in order for us to work 'em?"

    Steve Martin warned us about renegade cows in the book Cruel Shoes.

    http://kreedpost.blogspot.com/2008/1...gade-cows.html

    Cows in Trouble, by Steve Martin

    These were not the average "contented" cows. They were cows born for trouble. They were not cows who could stand by and let people call them "bossy." They were cows who could not hang around all day lowing. They were cows who could be just as happy chewing someone else's cud as their own. They were renegade cows.

    This story shows up at least twice in this forum and at least once in the A&S forum so I still can't resist suggesting a headline tag:

    Mountain bikers obviously do not have a proper understanding of pie.
