PHOENIX — Phoenix police say a family’s pet cow died after being pelted with softballs.
Sgt. Steve Martos tells KPHO-TV that the family found the animal with severe injuries on their north Phoenix ranch on Friday morning.
Martos says the cow was surrounded by more than a dozen softballs.
The cow had to be euthanized by a veterinarian, who told authorities a potato-launcher was likely used because of how badly the animal was hurt.
