Summary

Woman takes the form of a cow and attacks a man.

The contributor's grandfather was a young man in Kildonan. He was courting girl and they fell out. He was going to a waulking at the girl's house and still had a knife he'd been using to kill sheep. The cow came towards him. It was winter and all cattle should have been indoors. It attacked him, but he struck it with the knife and it ran off. When he reached the girl's house, she had fallen and injured herself. She was bleeding from a stab wound where he had wounded the cow. He told her mother, and had nothing more to do with her.
