Train kills 57 cattle near Hastings

"A horrific collision between a train and a herd of cattle has ended in the death of 57 animals.

KiwiRail's executive general manager of operations, Siva Sivapakkiam, confirmed a train, travelling between Napier to Palmerston North, struck the herd about 6pm on Thursday night." ... o4zZQk4sS8
Would have been dark at 6 p.m this time of year. Cows are also probably testing fences, looking for the kind of feed that would grow along railway lines and roads.

The only train trips I regret are the ones I didn't take.
