N.Y.Times corrects report of cows falling from planes

This past weekend, the New York Times published an eyebrow-raising correction of an article by a contributing writer that appeared in its Sunday New York Times Magazine. The correction:
An article on Jan. 16 about drilling for oil off the coast of Angola erroneously reported a story about cows falling from planes, as an example of risks in any engineering endeavor. No cows, smuggled or otherwise, ever fell from a plane into a Japanese fishing rig. The story is an urban legend, and versions of it have been reported in Scotland, Germany, Russia and other locations.

  1. I note the photo shows Holstein cows flying. Can Black Angus cattle fly? I've never seen a cow (or a bull) fly, but I am told that pigs may someday fly. Lately birds have NOT been able to fly in Arkansas. Starlings I believe?

    Your stories are beginning to freak me out!
