Don't forget cows! A Russian air crew recently pilfered a cow grazing near an
airfield. Said cow got rather antsy during the flight causing the crew to
through the cow out of the plane. The cow struck a Japanese fishing boat and
sank it. The japanese crew was held in jail for a few days because no one
would believe their story until the Russian Consulate confirmed it.
