OT - Boise State equipment truck hits a cow - **Warning - bloody image**

Submitted by MikeCohodes on October 9th, 2012 at 10:02 AM

So this past weekend Boise State traveled to Southern Miss for their game.  Along the way, the equipment truck had a high-speed run-in with a cow.  In case you've ever wondered what would happen if a semi collided with a cow, now you know.

Only thing I can't figure out is if this is cow parts or cow crap all over the hood and windshield.  Either way I found this to be amusing and wanted to share.  Hope it's not too offtopic, or too graphic for some readers.

...but I do want to comment:  That link you provided at the bottom of the OP contains a "must-read" for those here who hate State, it leaves me wondering if the author realized the double meaning of the 3rd sentence in the short comment he provided along with the picture.

Here it is again:

This is my first forum topic that wasn't Michigan related that I started, and my first two did generate some good discussion with over 60 and over 150 replies each.  I thought that sharing interesting stuff with an OT flag was part of the point of the message board?  I'm not trying to turn this into reddit, I just wanted to share something I thought was cool.

The best part of this is the driver (presumably) rather non-chalantly calling someone as the equipment van sits there stained with blood and half-digested grass (so, bovine semi-sh*t). I can only imagine how you borach this to your supervisor, let alone your insurer. "I'm standing here, ankle-deep in sh*t....no, I really am...."

This is also an illustration of why, in some parts of the country, comprehensive coverage is a definite must.

Legend has it, when M-59 was young, my dad's cattle farm was visited upon with the brilliant idea of using motorcycles to herd the head instead of horses. Yada yada yada there were cattle all over the new highway for a week after.
