Beef over bovine ends in battering, bruising

An argument over bovine babysitting left a testy resident of Kandal’s Koh Thom district bruised and battered on Monday night.

Police said the man was drinking with a neighbouring farmer when he asked the man to pay him for looking after his cows.

When the farmer refused, the man lashed out and punched him in the face. The farmer grabbed a nearby bamboo stick and hit the man three times in the head.

The police arrived and arrested only the farmer, who reportedly confessed, saying he was furious at the other man, who had hit him first. NOKORWAT
