MINNESOTA NEWS ROUND-UP: Fargo officer injured when cow charges him

FARGO, N.D. --  It sounds like a scene straight out of the movie:  A Fargo officer was hurt in an altercation with a cow this week on I-94. 

It happened after the animal was involved in a car crash.  When a Cass County deputy arrived to help, the cow charged and pushed him to the ground. The officer got back on his feet just as the cow was charging a second time shot the animal to avoid being attacked again.  The deputy is expected to recover.  The cow was pronounced dead at the scene.
