Should drunken bovicidal maniacs be charged with murder or animal cruelty?

PULASKI COUNTY

Several Cows Killed In Suspected DUI Accident

At least three cows died and several others were euthanized by police and animal control officers after a trailer carrying 42 head of cattle crashed late Monday night in Pukaski County.

Police say the incident happened at about 11:15 p.m. on Kentucky 2227, which is the old section of US 27 near the Clifty Road intersection in Somerset. Rodney Cook, 47, of Lancaster, South Carolina was southbound on KY 2227 in a 2000 Peterbilt semi tractor and trailer. Police say Cook failed to negotiate a right curve just prior to the new US 27 intersection and overturned.

The roadway was blocked for approximately 6 ½ hours while the cattle were contained and the truck was up righted.

Cook was arrested at the scene after failing several field sobriety tests. He is being held in the Pulaski County Detention Center for DUI 1st offense.

    Oh, that's sad!

    But sadly, animal cruelty charges usually don't amount to more than a tap on the wrist.

    There is a local farm here that was killing horses at an alarming rate - it's not even a 40-horse facility, and she killed six horses in 18 months. No one would do ANYTHING about it. It's disgusting.

    The fact that he could easily have murdered people in addition to the pain and harm that he created to the animals in his care, speaks for itself.

    He held up traffic for 61/2 hours, he created needless pain and the death of animals, he was DRUNK! He could have killed a bus load of people. Throw the book at that idiot for everything they can. Murder charges would never stand, animal cruelty charges are never enough.

    Too bad, eh?

    Sounds like the beef was butchered, but the driver was sauteed !

    No such thing as "bovicide"..and PETA people, don't even go there ! You are already a looneytunes fringe group.
