Moove over Rover

Moove it or lose it!In a sign of the times, cows are now jumping in to do jobs that were meant for dogs.

What’s next? Elephants snuggling in my parents’ bed? Black bears begging for food? Chihuahuas protecting their owners? It seems the world is coming to an end.

Maybe I should turn the tables on the bovine class. I can sit around all day and eat grass, fart and wait to be milked too. But that’s a bluff on my part. And you know why? Because I don’t like people touching my nipples. Don’t know why, I just don’t.

But I digress. Here’s the story from Sky News of some working class cows used to chase kids off an open field.

The people of Monks Brook in Southampton are fed up of council turf being ruined by youths on loud bikes.

So Hampshire County Council has turned to the hoofed animals for help and drafted in eight of the beasts to occupy the land.

A spokesperson said: “We had a number of complaints from residents about kids breaking in with motorbikes so we decided to move eight cows onto the land.”

The Aberdeen Angus cows seem to have done the trick.

But the new herd is not so popular with the next door neighbours – the footie team BTC Sports and Social Club say the cows are stopping matches.

Club chairman Damon Brown told Southampton’s The Daily Echo: “They are not solving the problem, they are just moving it on. The longer these cows are on the field the more damage they are going to do.”

It won’t be long before we see cows standing next to trees with hooves raised and dousing them with pee.
