KAMPAR (BERNAMA) – Seven cows were killed after they were rammed by two vehicles including a lorry at Kilometre 31 Jalan Ipoh-Kuala Lumpur, early yesterday morning.

Kampar District Police Chief Superintendent Hasron Hashim said the lorry driver who was travelling from Ipoh to Kampar could not avoid hitting five cows in the incident at 4am.

“At the same time, a car from the opposite direction, namely, from Kampar to Ipoh, also hit two cows on his lane,” he said in a statement yesterday.
