Night Talk - Mitch Harris opening comments, Monday 6th August 2018.

Tonight: A cow and her calf have been sent to a slaughterhouse after two people were injured in a cow attack in Auckland on Sunday.

Aimee Wedgwood was running loops through Totara Park when she noticed a group of cows acting suspiciously. As she was backing away, two of them launched an attack on her, knocking her off her feet.

A bystander intervened to help, using a stick - but he was knocked down by four cows and left with moderate injuries, including large lacerations to his legs.

Would you class this animal as dangerous ? Have you ever had a run-in with a cow?

Also tonight: National Party MP Judith Collins has shared a story from a website known for its 'fake news', calling on the Prime Minister to "denounce" the claims made in the story.

The story alleges France has voted against having an age of consent, "becoming the latest nation to give in to pressure from an international network of liberal activists determined to normalise pedophilia and decriminalise sex with children across the world."

"Is @jacindaardern willing to denounce this legislation of child sexual abuse?" Ms Collins tweeted.

The site is the frequent subject of fake-news-busting stories, including a list of fake news sites identified by CBS.

Other stories currently on the 'Your News Wire' site include 'Hundreds Of Scientists Debunk Darwin's Theory Of Evolution' and 'FBI Admits Aliens From Other Dimensions Have Visited Earth'.
