Cow Escapes in Casselton, ND

Posted: Updated:

A cow in the Casselton, North Dakota, area caused quite a scene Thursday morning after it got loose on it's way to the meat processing plant.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office got a call that during the transfer of a cow from the farmer to Casselton Cold Storage, the cow was able to get free and began to wander around. Employees from Casselton Cold Storage, along with bystanders, first tried to contain the cow but were unsuccessful.

The Cass County Sheriff's Office contacted Casselton Veterinary Clinic to help get the cow sedated in order to safely contain it. The cow had to be tranquilized three times and ended up several blocks away from the original location.

Central Cass School was notified to keep the kids inside due to the close proximity to the school. The cow was able to be put into a trailer and transported back home.  No one was injured and no property was damaged during the incident.
