It was only matter of time. It was reported yesterday morning on the Herald website http://www.nzherald.co.nz/nz/news/article.cfm?c_id=1&objectid=10603898 that 30 cows were blocking State Highway 1 on the Kapiti coast.
It was really only a matter of time before the Bovine Popular Front took to the streets. Cows are part of a shadowy element of farm animals colloborating with humans to destroy the world. Already accused of destroying rainforests and decamping their non-farm resident cousins they are now implicated in global warming.
It is obvious that such a dangerous animal might react badly to such negative publicity. The SH1 incident looks like an isolated incident, now under control. The cows have numbers, though. Large numbers. All I can say is that it's lucky that they don't have arms!
