Rube Goldberg’s cow?
A Taranaki farmer has lost a cow but kept his milking shed following a freak series of events.
A motorist was traveling along a dark, wet Manaia Rd near Kaponga on Friday night when he hit and killed a black friesian.The animal was thrown over the top of the car, peeling back the (hood) and shattering the windscreen. The car smashed into a pole which caused a power surge to race along the wires into the farmer’s house.
The same surge blew up the cowshed meter board and set it on fire. However, it melted a water line directly above which extinguished the blaze.
