That's really thinking ahead, Barney

PELHAM, N.H. (CBS) - Pelham police say they were justified in using a Taser several times on a cow, despite a complaint from its owner.
Sgt. Mike Pickles told WBZ he made the right decision.

“It blew through a wooden fence right next to me. That was the time a decision was made. I have to do something to try and control this animal,” he said.

“As a matter of public safety, that is a better option than just allowing things to happen and people get hurt.”

So, we're going to 'control' an 800+ pound animal using something designed for a 250 pound human.
Way to go Einstein. Did you even think to wonder how much MORE dangerous it would be to piss her off or scare her?
Don't they have ropes in New Hamster?


  1. Pelham PD has never been known for hiring the best and brightest

  2. Exactly. What could have happened if the cow went berserk? That thought process, or more apparent lack of any thought process, is rather disturbing. Guess we won't see this scenario played out on Mythbusters....dang...
