Dallas police were called to a home in Pleasant Grove early on Wednesday, June 14, when a woman reported that someone was just trying to break into her car and home. Officers were dispatched to the address, surveyed the situation, and nabbed the culprits in their tracks…their hoof tracks.

According to the Dallas Police Department, two escaped cows were found to be leaning on a car in the 9400 block of Frostwood Street. The noise made the owner think that someone had been trying to break into it. When neighbors saw the cows, they knocked on the lady’s door to advise her of the situation which, in turn, caused her to think that someone was then trying to break into the house.

The officers were pleasantly surprised to find that instead of potential perpetrators, instead it was a couple of ham-burger-lers… Ok, we tried. Nonetheless, the cows were returned to their rightful owners, who were found to be four miles from the complainant’s house, in the 1600 block of South St. Augustine Road. Taking to Twitter afterwards, Dallas Police Major Max Geron had quite a few cow puns to post as levity was obviously the order of the day, noting, “The call came in at about 4:20 a.m. It was pasture bedtime.”
