People probably can't tip cows, but a cow tipped a person in Knoxville. Then it stepped on him. An ambulance was called to the University of Tennessee agriculture campus Friday morning. Fire Department Capt. D.J. Corcoran told The Knoxville News Sentinel first responders found a 40 to 50-year-old man who said he was working with cattle in a pen when one knocked him down and stepped on his chest.
Corcoran said the man was alert and joking about being stepped on by a cow as he was put in an ambulance. He was taken to UT Medical Center to be examined as a precaution.
Cow tipping, or pushing over a dozing bovine, is largely discounted as a myth, much like snipe hunting.
