SUFFIELD, Conn. (AP) — Police in a Connecticut town are reminding people to not open their doors to “any unfamiliar cattle” after a pair of cows escaped from their pen and were found near the front door of a home a couple of houses away.
Officers spotted the cows walking on the side of a road and in yards in Suffield on Sunday morning around 10 a.m.
Officers managed to take a photo of the cows before herding them back to their pen.
Police posted the photo on Facebook, saying two “suspicious males” were going door-to-door “trying to sell dairy products.” They were “apprehended after a short foot pursuit.”
Police say the cows were able to escape due to a faulty electrical wire fence.
