In what appears to be a Farside cartoon come to horrifying life, an Australian cow recently escaped its enclosure, ran into the sea, swam a little and then drowned. Sounds like the cow was either dangerously depressed or doing an hilarious impersonation of Harold Holt. Cows can swim too - this was selective behaviour.
And you know, in a world where elephants are freaking out and raping rhinoceroses, is it really that unlikely that a cow would get bored out of it's complex mind in Queensland and inhale water? Not really.
