No Bull: Taser Doesn't Stun Cattle
No Bull: Taser Doesn't Stun Cattle

Wed Nov 1, 9:51 PM
JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. - It's no bull _ a Taser doesn't faze cattle. Johnson City police found that out Monday afternoon while trying to force a bull and cow off a city street.
Officers fired the electric stun gun at the animals after they escaped from a nearby farm and wandered around several major intersections and roadways in the city of about 55,500 people.
The Taser didn't budge the bovines, according to a police report.
The cattle were brought under control after officers used a tranquilizer gun, police said.

That was a mx animal taser that was used. Not a x26. The x26 tasers work on dogs etc but not larger animals.

It happened in SC too.
S.C. Deputy Tasers a Cow!
WALTERBORO, S.C. (AP) - A Taser may work on a billy goat gruff, but it doesn't seem to be very effective on runaway pot roast.
Incident reports show a Colleton County sheriff's deputy used a Taser twice Monday on a cow wandering along a road.
Two zaps later, the cow's owner still couldn't corral the animal, and it ran off. Deputies spent several hours chasing the cow in and out of traffic before suspending the pursuit.
Last January, Scott also used a Taser to rescue a Cottageville woman from an aggressive billy goat named Dodge, who was later adopted.\\` ` ` ` < ` )___/\

I have found that a large mallet to the head works just as good as a taser, plus its whats for dinner."Sometimes people need a little help. Sometimes people need to be forgiven. And sometimes they need to go to jail."

We dallied under
Vine maples and sapling alders
Searched for lady slippers
Found blackberry riots and
An old skid road
Brought ghost ferns and
Hollows filled with
While waves wrapped
Intricate lacings of weeds
'Round mule spinners
His cyanotic eyes
Were hard enough to make
The sun turn tail and
Tender enough to attract me
To his world of illusion

Bull drops using animal red taser.

May those that lost their lives in 9-11 RIP, for the things you did not many could do. You left so many behind so that you could save so few. For now we stand strong as one, and will not look back till the fight is done. (me)

Just say "hip, hip, YAH!!" that always works.In memory of Carlos Borland.
Trooper Borland was shot and killed when he stopped a car on I-80, just outside of Lovelock, Nevada, whose driver was wanted for not paying for gasoline. Unbeknownst to Trooper Borland, the suspect had just murdered two people in Texas and the vehicle was stolen. Before stopping the vehicle Trooper Borland had requested a check on the plates, but the plates had not yet been entered into NCIC. As he approached the vehicle the man pulled out a .38 caliber handgun and shot him in the head.
The suspect was apprehended later that day. He was convicted of Trooper Borland's murder and sentenced to death.
Trooper Borland had served with the agency for 1 year.
BE SAFE COURTEOUS AND PROFESSIONAL WITH ALL YOUR CONTACTS, AND ALWAYS HAVE A BACK-UP PLAN ON HOW TO KILL THEM.

You know, I am surprised that the cattle hit with the X26 did not drop in an alcohol-cocaine–meth-pcp induced comma that they did not wake up from because of the taser, I mean they are good cows that like church and video games.......
Sorry, it is early and the hummor is dry.STOP RESISTING!!!!
