Four AKs, three cows: what happens next?

Four AKs, three cows: what happens next?

The deadliest game is . . . definitely not cows. And yet a group of four cattle rustlers were each toting AK-47s when they went after the local bovines of Preah Vihear’s Choam Ksan district on Monday.

Officers said the quartet had just arrived at a field where some cows were grazing when one of them opened fire and shot down three cows on the spot.

Police heard the gunfire and approached, witnessing the men attempting to move the slain cattle. The cops fired a few shots themselves, into the air of course, causing the suspects to drop the carcasses and run for it. KOH SANTEPHEAP
