Cow rescue unsuccessful in Churchville – Staunton News Leader

CHURCHVILLE – Late Thursday afternoon, Augusta County authorities received a call that a cow had fallen into a sinkhole on Hundley Mill Road near Churchville.

It was a scenario that had “feel-good story” written all over it as nearly a dozen people, a veterinarian and a backhoe operator converged on the sinkhole that had swallowed the 2-year-old, 700-pound cow.

Family members at the scene were overheard saying the cow had been more like a pet and was bottle fed as a calf. 

The incident did not have a fairytale ending.

The sinkhole, located in the 200 block of Hundley Mill Road, measured about 3-feet wide, 6-feet long and was more than 15-feet deep with no slope for escape.

After some time it was determined the terrain, which was muddy, steep and in a thick patch of woods, was too dangerous to attempt to free the cow with a backhoe. A decision to euthanize the animal was finally reached.

Within minutes, after a couple members of the media and other onlookers were asked to leave, two gunshots pierced the damp afternoon air.

The property owners said they planned on covering the hole in an effort to prevent any future mishaps.

Augusta County Fire & Rescue were at the scene as well but eventually left prior to the cow being euthanized.

Beef Recalled From Major Retailers – KCWY 13 Where News Comes First

Many popular grocery chains may have sold beef contaminated with E-Coli.

Members of the United States Department of Agriculture say some of the 66 tons of ground beef recalled last week may been sold nationwide at stores including target, Safeway, and Sam’s Club.

Cargill Meat solutions re-called more than 132,000 pounds of ground beef September 19th because of possible contamination.

Officials are concerned some shoppers may have purchased the beef products and put them in their freezer.

Consumers who have bought ground beef from these store chains are urged to not eat them.

The USDA said that not all stores necessarily received the contaminated beef, and there may be additional retailers that received the product.

At least on person had died and another 17 have gotten sick according to the USDA and Centers for Disease Control staffs.

Palozzolo was knocked to the ground and the cow stepped on his leg and chest, the Republic reported. Palozzolo repeated used his stun gun on the cow’s head until the animal ran away.

Neither person was seriously hurt, although Palozzolo suffered an abrasion on his left arm and complained of soreness in his left arm and left leg, the newspaper reported.
