Six cows were knocked down like “blowing pins” by a speeding train in eastern Taiwan on Monday, and all of them died on the spot, according to the personnel responding to the scene.

“I don’t know how they got up there,” said a Bunun tribal farmer surnamed Chiu, who is the owner of the cows. He said that he had no idea why they ended up dead on the tracks because he tethered the six cows to graze about two kilometers from the accident scene in the morning.

Chiu said that he took odd jobs for a living and was raising the cows to make extra money. He said that he incurred a loss of more than NT$300,000 (US$10,000) from the death of the six cows alone. However, he also faced the possibility of Taiwan Railways Administration (TRA) seeking damages from him.    [FULL  STORY]
