MT - Snorting, charging cow runs amok, terrifying pedestrians, toppling bicyclist

The snorting, charging cow ran amok in downtown Billings on Tuesday for more than an hour and a half, terrifying pedestrians and knocking over a bicyclist until a police sniper fired a single shot through its heart.
Morgan Logan of Acton suffered broken bones in his lower leg and had sore ribs after his encounter with the 1,200-pound black Angus cow after it escaped from the Public Auction Yards on Tuesday afternoon.
Logan, 52, said he was driving a gravel truck when he saw the police chasing the animal and decided to try to help.
"I've been around livestock my whole life, so at first sight I thought it was pretty funny seeing cops chase a cow down the street," said Logan. "But she was like a bull at a rodeo."
The cow charged at him from under a tree, said Logan, who was released from the hospital on Wednesday.
