When that didn't work, she opened fire with the pistol that Wilcox had dropped in the encounter.
The crossbred cow, which sported 12 to 18-inch horns, was shot several times in the face, according to a police report. It was finally contained in the pasture.
"(Wilcox’s wife) stated that the cow has always been nasty and had attacked her about a week ago causing bruises," the report states.
