Cow ver­sus heli­copter

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - NEWS -

PO­LICE are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the crash of a heli­copter, after its pi­lot al­legedly struck a cow whilst herd­ing cat­tle on a Coen cat­tle sta­tion last week­end.

It’s be­lieved the rails un­derneath the heli­copter got tan­gled up in the cows horns caus­ing the chop­per to lose bal­ance.

As a re­sult of the rough land­ing the heli­copter has caught fire and been to­tally de­stroyed.

The pi­lot, a 35-year-old Rich­mond man, walked away from the crash with­out any in­jury.

The cow es­caped be­com­ing roast beef and lived to roam another day.
