    An incident involving a runaway cow that was pursued and shot 24 times by the Abbotsford Police Department is now being investigated.
    Police shot and killed the renegade cow shortly after 10 a.m. PT on Sunday, after it was spotted running across some of the busiest roads in the city. The cow was first spotted near Whatcom and South Parallel roads in Abbotsford, and soon made its way onto Highway 1, darting into oncoming traffic.
    "You have a family in a vehicle that strikes this animal or swerves to miss it and goes off road, you have huge implications," said Const. Paul Walker.
    Police say it wandered around the city for about 30 minutes, and ended up near the busy intersection of Sumas Way near South Fraser Way.

    "All attempts during that 30 minute window were unsuccessful to get somebody or some group to come and assist us," said Walker.
    "Officers and our road supervisor made the decision in the interest of public safety to put down the animal."
    And now, following criticism from residents, the Abbotsford police force is ordering a full review of the incident.
    "I did see a police officer with an assault rifle and about a dozen cops behind the cow following it up Sumas Way," said Abbotsford resident Josh van Koll.
    Walker says the Abby Police Department reviews all incidents when shots are fired, but the examination of this case will be a little different.
    "We're trying to come up with a solution so that we can better deal with an animal, should we encounter that again in our community,"
    Walker hopes another encounter never happens. He says no one wanted to see the events unfold the way they did.

    Black cows lives matter. Expect a bovine protest.

    Like the Dodge Charger. Would like it even more if it was an R/T. Hope to own one someday.

    They should have humanely caught the poor thing, load it on to a truck and promptly taken it to a slaughter house to become delicious steaks. You have to send a strong message to the rest of the herd.

    And of course, it's a black cow. Racist bastards.

    if they thought they had to shoot it then whatever

    seems like either this cow had superpowers to survive the first 23 bullets or the cops used girl bullets or the cops are terrible shots and kept shooting it in the bum or something

    I would guess the cow was a supercow---it's more interesting and doesn't make these cops look like goofballs

    Hope they can still make a jacket out of it, or maybe a wallet.
