Warning Issued Over Potentially-Dangerous Cow Missing In CT

NEW HAVEN (CBS/AP) — Animal Control officials say a cow missing in near the Orange-West Haven city line could be a bit dangerous.

Animal Control Officer Rick George tells the New Haven Register that the 400-pound animal, which fled from a farm on Prindle Hill Road, is a “runner and a jumper” and could cause problems if it is approached.

He notes that a cow can jump up to 7 feet in the air.

He also worries the cow could run into a congested area of the city if approached.

“We’re in a congested area in the city and we don’t want the cow to run into a car,” George said in the report. “That would cause a serious mishap.”

The cow was last seen Tuesday night near Gulf Pond.
