Cow on the lam(b)

by in View All Posts, April 1st, 2009

Meet Floss. She’s a cow, originally from South Yorkshire, who ran away 9 months ago after having been sold. She managed to spend that entire time on the run, traveling about 60 miles all told, hanging out in a paintball field and stealing hay here and there, before being brought to an animal sanctuary in Norfolk.

As one of her eventual protectors puts it, “She is quite a cow, she remained free by finding some really good hidey-holes.”

Yeah, that’s a pretty awesome cow. And, it would seem, a pretty awesome hidey-hole. [via]
