I think that overall it could have been handled better, but not everyone has the skill to deal with larger animals. Causing them panic only makes it worse. Non predatory animals aren't inclines to "fight" the same way as larger herd animals are. I honestly have to wonder what threat they posed to the public, that required lethal force. Sure, they could kill someone, but most people aren't going to stand in their way, and no cow is going to chase you down. While a Bull/Steer may, be humane and go for a better gun.
