The bovine revolution has begun.
A cow in Australia scuffled with a helicopter over the weekend, and the battle didn’t end the way you might expect.
When an unidentified chopper pilot tried to round up cows at a cattle station in Coen, on the Cape York Peninsula in Queensland, on Sunday, things didn’t go so well. Here’s the aftermath, posted on social media by Australian student pilot and aviation enthusiast Brendan Grainger:
“It’s believed the rails underneath the helicopter got tangled up in the cow’s horns, causing the chopper to lose balance,” the Queensland Police Service wrote on its website.
While the chopper was udderly destroyed, the 35-year-old pilot of the Robinson R22 Beta mustering helicopter was uninjured... except, perhaps for his pride.
And the cow? According to the Brisbane Times, the cow was just fine.
