Runaway Cows Found on Neighborhood Doorstep Leads to Cop Humor

When runaway cows explored a Connecticut town one morning, the police were in hot pursuit.

Some runaway cows led police on a morning chase in Suffield, Connecticut. The Suffield Police received a call about cows walking through yards and along the road near North Street and Route 75. When they arrived on the scene, they found the cows gathered in front of a home's front door.

The police snapped a photo, then set about getting the runaway cows back to where they belonged.

It turns out that the cows belonged just a couple of houses away, so police herded them back home and contained them within their pen.

The cows had initially escaped when part of their enclosure fence was broken. The fence, which is electric, had a broken wire and the electricity had been turned off. With the temptation of freedom being too great to resist, the cows took themselves out for a little neighborhood stroll. And it looks like they had a great time.

Of course, the Suffield Police Department took advantage of the great photo captured during the event, posting it to their Facebook page with the following caption:

Early this morning officers responded to a complaint of 2 suspicious males going door to door trying to sell dairy products. Officers determined that the 2 individuals did not have a solicitors permit and were apprehended after a short foot pursuit. We would like to remind everyone to NEVER open your doors to any unfamiliar cattle.
