Unconfirmed reports that another cow has been hit on the common prompted anger from residents in the area on social media.
One comment on a post in a public Facebook group blamed speed: “Feeling so sad and angry right now blaming the dark blaming the cows is just ridiculous people who can not drive to the conditions of the Road they are using should not be behind the wheel. Simple.
“Makes me sick some of the driving I’ve seen in both daylight and at night up there. We need to lower the speed limit.”
Other users called for cameras to be introduced on the common to help catch people and slow motorists down.
Another user claimed that a petition should be sent to the council.
