    A Brazilian man was killed when a cow crashed through his roof and fell on him as he was sleeping. http://worldnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/07/15/19479766-reports-cow-crashes-through-roof-kills-sleeping-brazilian?lite=

    I wondered about that, too, but the article didn't say whether the cow was injured or killed.

    Perhaps killed, cooked, and served up at the guy's funeral? It is, after all 3000 pounds (really?).

    I know, I know, this isn't funny, a man has died here, but still ...

    Maybe it was jumping over the moon and had a bad landing.

    I didn't quite understand that part. So is the guy's house against a wall that's directly against the back of the hill? Or did the cow make a big leap when it got to the bottom of the hill?

    The roof of the house slants into the hill, and I would assume the wall is directly against the back of the hill, yes. So a cow just climbed onto it.
