A woman who was seriously injured by a cow being kept as a pet in Half Moon Bay in 2016 was awarded more than $2.4 million last week by a San Mateo court.

The woman, Elvina Pereira (who is of no relation to this author), visited Azevedo Feed to buy food for her horses on April 23, 2016. After her purchase, a store employee led her across the street, to where the company's pet black Angus beef cow, Holly, was in a pen with her two recently born calves.

When they entered the pen, Holly rubbed her head against Pereira's leg, but when the employee approached the calves, the mother cow became aggressive and charged Pereira. Pereira said Holly hit her, knocking her back several times and pinning her hard to the fence. It wasn't until the employee kicked Holly, she says, that the cow got off her chest.
