Swimming Cow Saves Farmer

A farmer's wife who was swept away by floods in New Zealand yesterday had her life saved by a cow.

Kim Riley praised the animal - known only as Number 569 - and described it as "an ugly old tart".

The area around Mrs Riley's farm at Woodville, near Palmerston North, has been lashed by severe storms that have claimed two lives, washed away wooden houses and forced the evacuation of hundreds of North Island homes.






As custodians of the planet it is our responsibility to deal with all species with kindness, love and compassion. That these animals suffer through human cruelty is beyond understanding. Please help to stop this madness.
