17 October 2007 – a Cambodian cow

Exe-moo-tion of the day

Exe-moo-tion of the day

I know we’re a day late with this one, but we couldn’t let this slip through without a mention. So by way of an apology here’s our tribute to a truly moo-ving story.


Apparently a serial killer cow was executed on 17 October 2007 in Phnom Penh, following a murderous rampage.

The bovine’s brush with the law came after the cow escaped only to become a catalist to udder chaos. It roamed free on the roads on the outskirts of the Cambodian capital, with fatal consequences.

The cow was apprehended and held in custody after its errant break for freedom had led to a motorbike crash. Tragically a person was killed in the ensuing carnage, according to a French press agency1.

Sadly the cow was turning into a bit of a liability as it was not the first time it had made a break for freedom. The cow had previously escaped causing a pile up, in which a number of people had died.

It was eventually released back to its owner who, in a bid to avoid a stew, promptly executed it and sold the troublesome torro for meat, before anyone could make a meal of the incident.

The victim’s relatives had no beef with the owner, but did say the bovine’s behaviour was possibly due to his bad karma. The evil vibes had probably leeched into the animal causing the kamikaze cow to create havoc in Cambodia.

Unfortunately, we’re not sure which method of execution was employed, but perhaps the cow may have been burned at the steak.
