On May 9, 1962, a Guernsey cow living in Iowa was picked up by a tornado and flew through the air for a few minutes before landing safely about half a mile from her home.
Fawn, the cow, is said to hold the record for the longest unassisted solo cow fight in history. Fawn landed in the pen of a Holstein bull and was eventually able to wander home safely. The brief encounter with the bull resulted in a calf.
Surprisingly enough, Fawn had the chance to break her own record in 1967 when she was grazing on a country road when a tornado struck. The tornado picked her up and put her back down safely on the other side of the road. A busload of tourists witnessed her flight.
From then on, Fawn’s owner made sure that she was locked up when there was a storm warning.
