Well thats certainly something they need to fix!!
I assume the cow got distressed or scared and tried to flee, may have broken the wood at the top. Poor thing, its bad enough that its in that truck, I hate seeing them go past.

I hate seeing the livestock trucks. The smell is horrible, because who knows how long they've been like that for. And thats so terrible. The truck drivers do not give a shit at all, they have no emotion towards it, they're so used to it.
I used to work in a Deli- and everytime I was cutting meat I used to think to myself "i might aswell just go up to a pig and put an ax to it's throat" i wasnt a vegeterian at that point, but it definately helped me turn into one. I worked with 3 vegeterians and i have no idea how they did it...

My partner is a truck driver by trade, and he's been offered live stock jobs- but he's vowed never to condone it, he is so against it. No matter how much money they offered him, he could never do it. He doesn't even drive trucks that have logs on them

Yeah I didn't even know that could happen but to be honest I've never seen any real form of 'roof' on them, just a few bars.  I cringe every time they go past and it doesn't help living in farming country!

Only some trucks have covered roofs at the top, this one obviously didn't. I read the statement made by the livestock transport company. They said that it is known to all drivers that they are not to go through tunnels if the truck does not have a covered top. This is because this is not the first time an incident like this has happened. A few years ago a cows head was cut off going through this same tunnel.

Its disgusting the drivers continue to go through the tunnel injuring animals. There should be consequences for their actions
