Cows revenge for cow-tipping ...

Cow knocks over woman on bike, steps on her legs

BOULDER, Colo. -- A woman escaped serious injury and refused medical treatment after a cow knocked her down and walked on her legs. Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks ranger Pete Taylor said the woman was riding her bicycle along the South Boulder Creek Trail on Monday when she encountered the cow and stopped to let the animal cross.

Instead, the cow knocked the woman over and stepped on her legs.

Taylor said the woman wasn't seriously hurt. Her name was not released.

The cow had left the area by the time rangers arrived, but other people warned fellow bikers and hikers on the trail about the animal.

Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance vice president Jason Vogel called the incident "odd, rare and random."

Don't you just know they were saying:
"Folks - people-tipping cows are on the trail - beware! Hike/Bike at your own risk."


  1. That's almost unbelievable.

  2. Ha, that is crazy! Funny and sad all at the same time.I wonder if she will be scared of cows now!?

    Thanks for your comment on my 100th post. I sure didn't know it would be so much fun! I'm not sure of my due date yet. I think I'm around 12 weeks, but I wasn't keeping track of things (if you know what I mean) because I totally did not expect to get pregnant. I've got to go to the doctor to find out the date!

  3. Oh, wow...I love how the cow escaped the scene of the crime! LOL

  4. Hey, I've got a surprise for you! Couldn't find your email on your site, so can you email me? and I'll clue you in! Congrats!
