Prisoner charged after allegedly smacking cow with broom

`Boucher, who is nearing the end of a five-year sentence for aggravated assault, struck the cow with a broomstick when the stubborn animal resisted efforts to be restrained in a stall for milking.

“I just hit it once in the butt,” he told court, adding it was a hot day and the cows were getting out of control and aggressive.

“I didn’t think there’d be any repercussions that would be this serious.”

The cow suffered a small laceration to its udder along with swelling and traces of blood in its milk but eventually made a full recovery.’
