    Shooter Says He Mistook Cow For Coyote

    Thursday, November 22, 2007
    COLFAX TOWNSHIP, Mich. - A man says he shot and killed a neighbor's cow after mistaking it for a coyote.

    Authorities and the owner are skeptical.

    The undersheriff in northern Michigan's Benzie County says he doesn't see how anyone could confuse a 1,400-pound, pregnant cow with a coyote, which typically weighs 20 to 45 pounds.

    And anyway, shooting coyotes is illegal during deer-shooting season. Authorities asked the county prosecutor to bring charges.

    The 42-year-old man told authorities he was out to shoot coyotes near his home Saturday when he killed the cow, Undersheriff Rory Heckman said. Heckman said the man then tried to drag the cow home.

    "The part of his story he his holding to is he shot at a coyote. I don't know how he hit a several-thousand-pound cow mistaking it for a coyote," Heckman said.

    The cow, named Hannah, had wandered away from her farm.

    "My husband thought that he should go through some therapy looking at repeated pictures of cows and coyotes, because they look nothing alike," said owner DeAnn Mosher. "It didn't make any sense to me."

    There is a case in the Vermont courts, right now, where a hunter mistook his friend (a fellow hunter) for a cow...I mean a coyote...I wonder what his taxidermist will think:shocked:

    That's why they tell you to be sure of what you are shooting at. We don't need gun control, we need idiot control. :drunk:

    How would you know if it is a cow or a coyote if you can't tell the difference. Maybe new glasses or maybe find the ones you are supposed to use.

    Well see it's fairly easy , the neighbors coyote's all wear a M bar brand on the right hip with the right ear notched and all my cows wear a rafter P V brand on the right shoulder with the left ear slit.
