Montana man injured by runaway cow

A Montana man who was injured trying to help corral a cow running in the streets in the state's largest city has been released from the hospital.

The Billings Gazette reports (http://bit.ly/MOC8uM) that Morgan Logan of Acton suffered a broken leg and had sore ribs after being thrown by the 1,200-pound cow after it escaped Tuesday afternoon.

Logan says he was driving a gravel truck when he saw police trying to contain the cow and decided to try to help them. He says the next thing he knew he was in the air.

Billings police Lt. Kevin Iffland says by the time Logan encountered the cow it had already tipped over a bicyclist, charged pedestrians and nearly jumped over one of the police vehicles.

A police marksman killed the cow.
