Put two powerful ladies together, and the ‘heat’ just might kill you. Or so, was the lesson for Madipakkam residents, who were privy to two cows at loggerheads a day ahead of Women’s Day. The duel resulted in the two locking horns, one horn secured dangerously under the throat of another! And the cows were stuck in this position for a good five hours before a level-headed male arrived on the scene to save the day. With volunteers for back-up and a doctor for sedation, Dawn Williams of The Blue Cross of India said that it in the end all that the situation needed was a little calm and unfortunately, a hacksaw. “We cut about five inches off of one horn from the tip, but she didn’t feel any pain,” he assures. Once untangled, the cows were carefully released in opposite directions. Chennai will be a safer place if these ‘ladies’ stay strangers.
