Man Stepped On By Cow, Flown to Rochester

The lead story from the local paper. I realize someone was injured and I sincerely hope he's okay. BUT damn, I really do love that headline.
"A man near Hollandale was injured Saturday morning after he was reportedly stepped on by at least one cow, according to the Freeborn County Sheriff’s Office.
Freeborn County sheriff’s detective Scott Golbuff said authorities received a call at 10:46 a.m. of the incident at 80492 275th St. near Hollandale.
The man, whose name has not been released, was transported by Mayo One helicopter to Rochester.
Golbuff said the man was conscious and his injuries appeared to be non-lifethreatening, but he was transferred as a precautionary measure.
Golbuff reported bleeding from the mouth and jaw area, among other areas.
At this time it is unclear whether more than one cow was involved and whether the man was somehow knocked down before being stepped on."

Was Hollandale ever famous for it's cowboys? Or was it just the milk-maids?

I was stepped on by a horse once. All I did is "fly off the handle".
"Stepped on by a cow" is not what I want on my tombstone.

Fool ain't with us now
Truth be told
His hands were cold
Was kilt by a startled cow
