BOULDER, Colo. – A woman escaped serious injury and refused medical treatment after a cow knocked her down and walked on her legs. Boulder Open Space and Mountain Parks ranger Pete Taylor said the woman was riding her bicycle along the South Boulder Creek Trail on Monday when she encountered the cow and stopped to let the animal cross.
Instead, the cow knocked the woman over and stepped on her legs.
Taylor said the woman wasn't seriously hurt. Her name was not released.
The cow had left the area by the time rangers arrived, but other people warned fellow bikers and hikers on the trail about the animal.
Boulder Mountain Bike Alliance vice president Jason Vogel called the incident "odd, rare and random."
