Well, they killed Louise, our escaped cow

WHY WHY WHY DID LOUISE HAVE TO DIE?
Oh, because she weighed 1,150 pounds, and was headed for I-275. I'm waiting for the uproar. Why didn't they taze her? Someone always asks that question.
Evidently, they did try a tranquilizer dart, but it didn't work.
And apparently, she was a he. Which I find amusing because the News 5 reporter who was covering this on Monday night was dressed entirely in bright red. Someone in wardrobe at News 5 must have had it in for her.
Some people also did not know that one of our commenters named
her him Louise. Here's the owner of Stehlin's Meats:
"We didn't give this steer a nickname," Stehlin said. "My grandfather always told us never to name the cattle. They're animals, not pets."
You know some people read that and were shocked to hear that food comes from animals, not grocery stores. You know they were.
Anyway, Louise, may you rest in peace. Your candle burned out long before your legend ever did.
