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.
Sgt. Geoffrey Miner tells WGGB/WSHM a driver reported seeing suspicious-looking cows walking on the side of a road and in yards in Suffield, Connecticut, one Sunday morning.
Officers managed to take a photo of the cows to ID with the national crime database before herding them back to their pen.
The cows reportedly resisted efforts to have their hoof-prints taken.
Police posted the photo on Facebook, saying two “suspicious bovines” 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.
