Washington police said a cow that got loose inside the city limits Thursday morning was killed after being shot several times. Police made the decision to put down the animal out of fear that it would injure someone and/or cause major damage to property. The cow was being delivered to the Williams Brothers Meat Co. facility on East Eighth Street about 6:30 a.m. when it broke free from its owners and began running through the neighborhood before ending up on a vacant parcel east of Sunnyside Street, between Eighth and Ninth streets. Police said the cow, after being chased, became aggressive and the decision was made to kill it. Officers and the cow’s owner shot the animal several times with handguns and rifles before they called in a farmer who assisted by shooting the animal with a high-powered rifle which brought it down, according to reports.
