Interesting Animal - Cows

Scientists in the UK are genetically altering dairy cows so they have no horns, in a bid to make
them safer and to cut the risk of injury to farmers and animals.

(According to the UK's Health and Safety Executive, 5 farmers were killed and 91 injured by cattle between 2010-11, and according to the Farmers Union 6 workers died in 2012; three were trampled to death by cattle and three were attacked by bulls.

And it's not just farmers, walkers, especially ones with dogs are at risk too.)
