Protestors have held a vigil for...
Oh, oh! We know how these often turn out!
...a runaway cow that was rammed and killed using a police van.
Oh. Well, that's all right then. But who organises a vigil for a cow?
The event was organised by the Vegan Action for Animals group.
Say no more...
The force said the case would be passed to the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC).
And they'll get away with it without condemnation from officialdom. The police do have form, after all.
In a statement the group said: "The vigil was a powerful and passionate meeting of people who feel very strongly that the cow was wrongfully murdered.
"This vigil was not only attended in person by local people, but also online nationwide. We had a positive response from the local community, who have been shaken by the events of last week."
If they are 'shaken' now, wait until they get the bill, that'll shake them even further!
Police and Crime Commissioner for Thames Valley Matthew Barber said he supported the actions of the officers, describing them as a "last resort".
Given how much it cost to repair the vehicle that was driven at a dog, we can only imagine how much it's going to cost for vehicles that rammed a cow repeatedly!
