The December 1925 issue of Canadian Railway and Marine World reported that the small wooden passenger and freight steamer HENRY PEDWELL had arrived at Wiarton with a cargo of cattle from Manitoulin Island. While she was unloading, a cow jumped over the gangway into the water and then charged at the ship, puncturing her hull with its horns. She was hauled on the Wiarton Marine Railway for temporary repairs and was then sent to Collingwood for permanent repair. HENRY PEDWELL was owned at the time by Capt. John Tackaberry of Lions Head, Ontario.
