Herd of cows run amok
5:00pm Saturday 5th January 2013 in News
A HERD of cows ran amok in Bourton-on-the-Water after escaping from a nearby farm last weekend.
About 25 cows, including 15 calves, were found wandering around Rye Close, Rye Crescent and Lambert’s Field on Saturday.
Police were called at 4am to attempt to find the owner and round up the herd which had trampled fences and lawns in nearby properties.
One cow was seen running towards a tennis court while another was seen in a garden.
A local farmer brought his staff along to help catch the animals before the herd’s owner, a farmer from Stow, was found five hours later.
Residents who think their properties were damaged because of the herd can refer to incident 73 of 291212 when making an insurance claim.
