Police remind people not to open their doors to ‘unfamiliar cattle’

Police in a Connecticut town have reminded people not to open their doors to ‘any unfamiliar cattle’ after a pair of young bulls escaped from their pen and were found near the front door of a property a couple of houses away.

Sgt Geoffrey Miner said a driver reported seeing the cows walking on the side of a road and in gardens in Suffield.

They managed to mooove them along eventually and steer them back to where they belonged.

Officers managed to take a photo of the bulls before herding them back to their pen.

Police posted the photo on Facebook, saying two ‘suspicious males’ were going door-to-door ‘trying to sell dairy products’.

Police said the cows were able to escape due to a faulty electrical wire fence.
