EXTRA! EXTRA! MadDog Involved in Bovine Blunder!
I was on my way home from Numurkah after dropping home a friend last night when this cow bolted out into the road. I swerved to miss it, and it's good thing too otherwise it would have been a head-on. Its head hit the left side mirror, and it flew forward smashing the front passenger side window, showering glass all over inside of the car. The back door also got a bit of minor damage. In Gracie's car no less... She's not too upset. She's come to expect me to smash her car up every now and again.

I'm fine. I was mighty shook up though. The cow was in better shape than I was. I was scared at first, then angry, after I realised that I'd have to pay for it. I could get the owners of the cow to pay for it if I could identify the cow. Fat chance of that. It was all over in a few seconds, and all I saw was the shadow of the cow ambling off into the bushes on the side of the road. Now I just think the whole incident is funny, looking back on it...

UPDATE: Gracie just came in with a couple of quotes... $1,200... Okay... I'm angry again... We can pay about $300 now to fix the window and get the car secure again, then pay the rest later. Gracie's insurance company doesn't like us very much. We've made a few claims and we'd like to avoid raising our premium even more so if possible. Apparently I can make a complaint to the police and they have to investigate to try and find the owner of the cow. Has anyone else been in a similar situation? If so, I'd like to know how you fared, or if you've got any advice, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.
