Good morning. I'm David Greene. So in Poland, a cow took over an island. This is not your ordinary cow. She was on her way to the slaughterhouse and broke loose. She broke a farm worker's arm. Then she jumped in a lake and swam to an island where firefighters tried to reach her. She eluded them. This cow has impressed a local politician, who is now fighting for her life.
