    I had a goat that was like that years ago. His fate was essentially the same.

    Went thru that with a horse that broke thru a fence one time. Damn that horse could run and jump. A big young race horse. $25,000 horse. Was blocked in an alley by pickup trucks. Jumped the trucks. Someone did get a rope around it's neck. Jerked it right out. Police cars and people in 4X4s chasing, fearing it'd run out on the highway causing an accident as it ran thru alleys and the railroad tracks a block over. Able to jump short fences, the vehicles simply couldn't follow, people scrambling to try to figure where it was off to.

    An older fellow who always had raised horses, a rancher, finally convinced the police and everyone of the obvious solution.

    Just stop chasing it. "Leave it alone and it will go home. Its running because you're chasing it."

    About a quarter hour later like appearing out of nowhere it strolled back thru the fence it has busted and headed straight for the water trough.

    Yeah, chasing a cow with sirens running and shooting at it will have it keep running. But it was probably an exciting chase.

    "Police had shot the animal earlier in the pursuit but the wounded cow kept running."

    As clear a case of "resisting" as I've heard.

    Of course this is breaking news in Idaho.

    This is absolutely true.

    Prey animals run when being chased by predators.

    An animal was running and scared, clearly trying to preserve his/her own life, and all we do is making ****ing jokes? Humans can be so crude. **** you cops. **** human supremacy.
