OK, scientific types, can a cow jump this high?

Neighbour William de Cothi, 17, photographed the animal after he spotted it on the roof about six feet off the ground.

The Sixth Form student said: “I was looking out of my window when I saw the cow.
At first I thought that it was an illusion and that it was in the background and not really on the roof.

“But after a closer look I could see it was actually on the roof.”

The teenager added: “I have heard cows can jump quite high, so I think that is how it got up there.

“I got my family to come and look later and they laughed. It was absolutely amazing.”

The house owner in Blagdon, Somerset, called police after getting home to find her roof seriously damaged and smashed tiles as she feared a burglar had tried to break in.

Local PC Ray Bradley said: “This was initially recorded on my figures as a burglary so I am glad I can take it off.

“If it wasn’t for the door-to-door enquires and this photo we wouldn’t have found out it was a cow responsible.”

I have seen a pregnant cow jump at least four feet to keep from being herded into a barn for birthing.  The moon is probably out of reach, but I’m withholding judgment on any lower height.

Of course this is an anecdote and therefore worthless as evidence.

Well, when those crazy cowboys climb on the backs of bulls they seem to jump around a bit and somewhat high. Even though they’re bucking more than jumping I bet they an jump a pretty good height/distance.  So the female versions can probably get up pretty good, too, depending on the breed and the motivation.
