Runaway Cows: 2 is a Trend

by in View All Posts, May 6th, 2009

Hot on the heels of Floss, the hidey-hole-finding, paintball-field-terrorizing Yorkshire runaway comes word of an unnamed bovine escapee on the run in Queens today. Last we heard she was being corralled with the help of the mounted (on horses, that is) police force. The spectacularly-named Richard P. Gentles, spokesman for the city Animal Care and Control Agency, tells the New York Times:

…Mr. Gentles said that the cow would not be forced to return to the slaughterhouse.

“Well, somebody can come and claim her, but in our experience, nobody has come forward in the past and asked to claim their cow,” he said. “We haven’t gotten any calls that someone is missing their cow.”

It appeared the cow did not have to be tranquilized when captured.

“I believe it came peacefully,” a police spokesman said.

Go, cow, go!
