Cow attacks lead to beach closures in popular tourist destination
Nothing ruins a day at the beach like an aggressive cow.
A beach in France which is famous for its cows in the sun recently had to temporarily close due to aggressive animal behavior. The local authorities took the opportunity to remind the public that cows are wild animals and that they must be given their space.
Authorities have temporarily closed the beaches of Corsica, a French island in the Mediterranean, on New York Post reports. The island is famous for having 15,000 cows roaming the island, including the picturesque beaches.
Apparently the animals have grown used to not having to share land with people over the past year as tourists have been kept away due to lockdown regulations.
RARE SAW WITH ROPE ATTACHED AROUND COIL MOUTH
A local councilor discussed the matter with local reporters, saying that if tourists laugh at the cows and think they take good photos, the animals have become a real problem on the island.
Several people have recently been attacked by cows, including a man who had his neck cranked on a beach in Lotu. There was also another incident where a herd of cows chased tourists down a popular street.

A 70-year-old woman was very close to death after a cow attacked her while she was hanging out her laundry. According to François Acquaviva, mayor of the town of Lozzi, the animal did not touch the femoral artery of the woman by only two centimeters.
This is not the first time that visitors have been attacked by cows. In 2017, a bather tried to take a selfie with one of the animals, Travel and leisure reports. Unfortunately, the animal responded by slashing her face.
Although her injuries were not life threatening, the woman suffered damage to her teeth and had to undergo stitches.
