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.






Non-violence leads to the highest ethics, which is the goal of all evolution. Until we stop harming all other living beings, we are still savages.
