Stormy has had it with show business.
The 1600 lb. Hereford escaped a live Nativity scene in Philadelphia yesterday. Twice.
The first time, the 7 year old cow was found heading south on Interstate 95 at about 2:30 am. Police cruisers surrounded her, and she was led safely back to Old First Reformed United Church of Christ in the Old City neighborhood.
Four hours later, police were summoned again. Stormy had reached the 4th level of a parking garage attached to the Wyndham Hotel.
The 4th level.
The comments commenced. Code Moo. The City of Udderly Love. There was some talk of a conspiracy by Chic Fil A.
My favorite image was provided on the twitter account @PhillyPolice.
You know, you start your day saying “well, being a cop is a tough job, but at least I won’t have to catch a cow today.” But, wouldn’t you know it? You’re wrangling a bovine. Then you say, “Well, at least I’ll never have to do that again….”
Today, church officials announced that Stormy had been replaced by a smaller cow named Ginger, one they believe will not be able to escape the enclosure.
