Dealing with an angry, injured cow left a volunteer firefighter from the Renfroe VFD in Talledega County, Alabama in Regional Medical Center in Anniston with a bullet wound to his leg. The local sheriff calls it an accidental shooting and won’t be filing charges against the firefighter who fired the gun. According to Chris Norwood at The Daily Home the bullet was meant for the animal after the firefighters had responded to a call for the cow being struck by a car:
According to Talladega County Chief Deputy Jimmy Kilgore, two Renfroe Volunteer firefighters responded to the call on the 3000 block of Plantersville Road about 8 Wednesday night. While they were trying to move the injured cow out of the roadway, the animal became agitated and attempted to charge at one of the firefighters. The firefighter pulled a handgun and shot at the cow but missed, instead hitting his colleague in the lower leg.
