Herd of cows desperately, and fruitlessly, tries to save bull hit by car in Ma On Shan

A heartbreaking scene unfolded on a road in Ma On Shan yesterday as a herd of cattle desperately tried to save a bull that had been knocked down by a car. Despite their efforts to encourage the male to move by pushing his limp body with their heads, the animal could not get up and later died.

 

According to the SCMP, the black bull was crossing Sai Sha Road with several others at around 7:35am when it was knocked down by a four-wheel-drive vehicle driven by a 33-year-old woman. The cow’s leg was broken with the animal left laying on its side spilling blood into the road, while the car only suffered a slight dent to its bumper. The driver did, however, stop and call the police for assistance. One lane of traffic was blocked by the concerned cows which surrounded the injured animal, but even loud tooting horns could not persuade them to move. Eventually personnel from the SPCA arrived on the scene, but they were unable to save the bull. Police officers cleared the mourning cows off the road while the Environmental, Food and Hygiene Department removed the body.

Oh! That is so sad! I think this a reminder that animals have feelings too! People driving in rural areas really have to keep an extra eye out for animals. One of my work friends ran into a stray red kangaroo and her car ran into a ditch from the impact.

This is so heartbreaking... how can you run over a cow? they're huge and don't usually run extremely fast... The government needs to do more to protect these animals, there are lots in rural areas that just roam around, just because they're animals it doesn't mean their lives are not worth caring about...

It is sad to hear of any animal suffering and succumbing to its injuries after being hit. It is heartbreaking to hear that other members from its herd stood by its side and tried to coax it up.

That is the pack mentality, they'll stick around no matter what. If the herd was crossing together, I hope the woman wasn't distracted while driving.

How is this news when the three co-founders of Occupy Central will today hand themselves in to police, as a police source revealed that more than 200 people had been identified for investigation over the civil disobedience movement.

 

The Reverend Chu Yiu-ming and academics Benny Tai Yiu-ting and Dr Chan Kin-man plan to report to Central Police Station at 3pm in an attempt to bring a peaceful end to the protests. They also made an open appeal to student-led protesters to retreat.

 

They will be joined by dozens of Occupy supporters, including Cardinal Joseph Zen Ze-kiun. Media tycoon Jimmy Lai Chee-ying and Democratic Party Founder Martin Lee Chu-ming will wait for the protests to end before surrendering.

You can splat hedgehogs easily but a cow ? It's a no brainer that the cow will dent your car. Not sure what went in the ladies head.
