Punch,  51 (1866), 19.

"A Charge of Horning"



News-Commentary, Drollery


Animal Behaviour, Animal Husbandry, Disease, Crime

    Discusses a report in the 'Scotch papers' of a cow which, on attempting to open the doors of a Montrose jail, was 'ill-used' for infringing the Rinderpest laws. Believes this is 'touching proof of the progress of intelligence among the inferior creation' but thinks the cow should be treated kindly because it has more sense than the 'framers' of the Rinderpest regulations.
