It was surprise enough when Tanya Coccia’s car accidentally hit two cows that had wandered on to the road.
It was an even bigger surprise when Coccia and her 14-year-old daughter realized one of the cows had landed in her back seat.
“It was alive and kicking and trying to right itself,” Coccia told MyFOXBoston.com on Friday.
When emergency crews arrived they found the cow in the car shaking after falling through the back window, according to MyFOXBoston.com.
The cows had wandered away from a nearby beef farm. One cow had to be euthanized, MyFOXBoston.com reports, but the cow in the backseat survived and was towed back to the farm while still in the car.
