Florida police capture fugitive cow that was on the lam for months


Not known for being inconspicuous, one South Florida cow is confounding local authorities after being on the lam for “several months.”

On Wednesday, the Pembroke Pines police department tweeted that it’s been searching for the female cow for months but has come up empty. A brown cow with a white head, the large animal is “faster than it looks” and a “talented fence jumper,” according to police.

Truly a South Florida cow, it apparently enjoys pools as well.

“For several months a loose cow has been seen wandering in the area of Sheridan & I-75,” Pembroke Pines Police tweeted. “It has evaded capture by both our officers & assisting cow herders since January. If you know the owner of this cow, or if you know its whereabouts, contact the PPPD at 954-431-2200.”

While the wanted cow isn’t considered dangerous, it has been frequenting the roadways around Sheridan Street and I-75, so drivers are advised to be careful. Maybe it was taking a page from Leonardo DiCaprio’s notable fugitive character Frank Abignale Jr. in “Catch Me if You Can,” and evading authorities at the nearby Cinemark Paradise.

While police didn’t list the size of the fugitive, cows weigh roughly 1,600 pounds.

Police have listed pending charges of “MOOving violations,” “UDDERing false checks,” and “Fleeing & Eluding police.”
