Bovine Burglary

Patrick Laverty

Ok, maybe this isn't a lighter note to the owner of the cows, or maybe even to the cows themselves I would suppose, but I'm guessing when you heard of stolen cows, you had the same response. How the heck do you steal cows? It's not like you can just slip one inside your coat, or drop one in a bag, or even take one into the fitting room, remove the tags and walk out with it. Plus, it's not like the thief was the next door neighbor just leading the cows out of their pastures to another field. This is someone who moved them from Tiverton to North Stonington, CT.

The Connecticut man reportedly told authorities that he had sold some cow feed to the Tiverton farmer and had not yet received payment, so he figured it'd make sense to drive to the farm, I'm assuming with a trailer, and steal away with the steer. What he planned to do with them next, I'm not so sure, but apparently, it's not healthy for a dairy cow to not be milked on their proper schedule.

However, the bovine burglar appears to have been properly pinched and is currently under the auspices of the authorities.

Cows are so stupid that they get caught between two trees and don't know enough to back out. We used to have to pull them out with a Jeep.
