A motorcyclist has died on Highway 3 in the Boundary after hitting a cow.
Sergeant John Ferguson with West Kootenay Traffic Services says they sometimes see tragic outcomes with wildlife but it’s rare for a domestic animal to be hit.
It happened around 10:40 Monday night near Eholt Road.
The other rider – who was out in front – was not hurt.
Ferguson says the local farmer is fully co-operating with the police investigation.
