A MADDENED cow charged down the main street of Wagga last night with a policeman close behind.
The cow charged through the door of Wagga’s newspaper office, knocked down a fence, then stormed through two sets of swinging glass doors to enter the lounge of a nearby hotel.
The guests retreated up-stairs, and the cow visited the bar – through glass doors.
There it smashed glasses, bottles, and fittings, brushed against beer taps, turning them on, and then wallowed in the beer.
Senior-Constable J. Holland, who had been chasing the cow, seized a coat and played the role of matador. The cow charged, missed the coat, and slid out the hotel door.
Finally it was corralled in the sale-yards.
-The Melbourne Argus Thursday March 11 1954.
