The bizarre moment a COW was sent flying down Snowdonia zip wire

Organisers were keen to stress it was not an April Fool’s stunt: the world’s first zip wire dairy cow would be taking to the skies above a quarry in Snowdonia – and reaching speeds faster than a skydiver.

Not a real cow, of course, but a fibreglass facsimile owned by the Cows On Tour (COT) team of Welsh farmers.

This afternoon the fearless bovine did indeed fly – albeit strapped in to a harness pre-tested for safety by the Zip World team at Penrhyn Quarry, Bethesda.
