Letter: Tranquilize the cows

Thursday, July 12, 2018

The “Cows on the Loose” article in Saturday, June 23’s edition doesn’t mention tranquilizing the heifers and having a farmer who would want them, take them. If the owner doesn’t care about the cows, the best solution was to talk about shooting them? Really? Tranquilizing them was never considered? I imagine it’s not an easy thing to do, but those with means — even perhaps, UMass-Amherst, the agricultural university — might help. It’s depressing that the only solution anyone thought of was death.
