Police Sniper Shoots Runaway Cow in Billings

BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Billings police sniper has shot a runaway cow after it got loose and ran over a man several blocks away.

The Billings Gazette reports the cow escaped Tuesday while being unloaded near the Public Auction Yards on Billings’ South Side.

The cow injured a construction worker, who was taken to a hospital. His condition was not immediately known.

Police officers called in a sniper. Authorities cornered the cow and the sniper shot it more than an hour and a half after the animal broke free.

The episode is reminiscent of the famous 2006 escape by the Unsinkable Molly B, the cow that leaped over a slaughterhouse gate, ran through the streets of Great Falls and swam across the Missouri River.

Molly B now lives at a Stevensville sanctuary.
