For once, a cow behaved like a bull on the rampage, akin to the latter’s behaviour when it faces the red cape flashed by a matador. Except that the venue here was not a bullfighting arena, but a hospital in Colombia where it vented its aggression.
According to a report in a section of the British media, a cow that had escaped from its pen ran inside a hospital and attacked patients, knocked over chairs and caused general panic. A video of the incident shows the animal running amok even as people scamper for safety, but are tailed by the irked cow that slams into them.
The cow falls several times allowing some patients to escape, but leaves an injured woman trapped on the floor as two men manage to pull it away.
However, it charges at the woman again as a man follows and tries to coax it back it before the cow is finally seen exiting the hospital and the woman looks for help. The bizarre incident occurred in Colombia’s Hospital San Rafael in the municipality of San Luis in the department of Antioquia.
A second video shows the incident from outside the medical centre where a group of people clap and whistle at the cow but flee as soon as it exits. Local newspaper Vanguardia said nobody was seriously injured in the incident as the trampled woman was treated for minor contusions and pain while the rest of the patients did not seek treatment. The rogue cow also damaged two motorcycles at the hospital’s entrance and some chairs in the waiting room.
The cow’s owner went to the hospital to apologise for the incident and asked about the woman’s health as well as the material damage. There have been no reports of the police opening an investigation.
