Cows are dead and you people are concern about losing money? what about the lives that ended in the wreck? do you think that those cows didn't feel? Im sure they were in a lot of pain and suffered a long time. And all you care about is money. I hope criminal charges are brought up against the driver. Felony animal abuse and he should have to serve several years for the murder of these cows.

People should be more concerned about the person and not the animals. Animals died in an accident he didnt abuse them so jail is a little harsh. Really get a clue.

true. F the cows. Call it "Karmic retibution," hippies. I'm more concerned with the monetary loss (or lack thereof) suffered by the priniciple parties involved here... 9 dead cows can cost more than $15,000 depending on the breed and classification... if the truck was totalled, add another $10,000 easy. This is a high-dollar loss. More then likely, the cows that survived this trip will sell for enough to cover this expense, but if it does'nt, SOMEBODY needs to pay. And test the driver (there's no reason for Texas cattle to be hauled this way, it usually goes the other way around.)

Not that it matters but the cows won't cost near as much as the truck the cows coming out of texas are pretty cheap.

depends on the cows, depends on the truck. If it was one of those 18-wheeler cattle-haul rigs, sure, the truck could be worth more hten the cows (depending on it's year.) But if it was just some pickup or dually with a hauler on it, no way. Cattle might be down in Texas this year, but stock prices around here have been higher then they've ever been all year. I've never seen 'em sell like they've been selling the last four months, considering the price of corn and what has happened every other YEAR by ration it's completely out-of-whack and should'nt be happening at all, but I guess that tsunami that hit Japan really did change the market like they predicted. Can't last forever, though, nothing ever does.

This is one of the funniest pieces of sh*t I read in a long time. Thanks for the laugh. HELLO, THEIR COWS!! not like they are humans. God get real. If they lost that many cows, then yes, it's all about the money they lost losing them. Felony charges???? get a life, clueless.

That's the what driver of the truck deserves. hauling these sweet beings around like they are worthless. They are living breathing creatures. They deserve better.

if something's worthless, it never seems to get hauled around anywhere. If there were any PETA operatives in Monterey they would get their ass stomped before they were able to hold the first rally.

i hope the cows still got eaten,what a waste of steak lol.wow peta what a prick,you really think a bunch of hamburgers where worth that mans life?misplaced priorities by far.you do realise those cows never would have been born,or got to experience life if they weren't bred for food.have you noticed how we don't eat dogs?its because they have personality(PERSONality)inteli gence,and maybe even souls who knows,but cows for the most part are mindless bags of meat right for the feasting.do you hope pain and suffering on the wild animals who kill for their food?because you should if your going wish it the driver for hauling sustenance to our hungry belly's
