Ill. lawmaker has surgery after being hurt by cow
CORDOVA (AP) – State Rep. Rich Morthland is recovering from surgery after an encounter with a cow left him with a knee injury.
The Cordova Republican says the injury happened Thursday when a cow trying to bolt through a gate smashed its head into his knee.
Morthland tells The (Moline) Dispatch that he "screamed so hard it scared the other cows off." He says he was able to get the gate closed but had to drag himself 100 yards to his car.
