“It is Texas after all,” Major Max Geron of the Dallas Police Department told MySA.com, trying to find some reason after a strange incident in Dallas took place in the wee hours of last Wednesday morning. A woman fearfully called the police thinking that someone was trying to break into her car. Then, she heard knocking at her door and caught sight of moving flashes of light. But, when police arrived, all they found were cows.

Apparently, two cows had wandered away from home about four miles away, and their owners went out looking for them. The rogue livestock, search party, and possible concerned (and confused) citizens had caused enough commotion to alarm the caller who had no idea the situation was so harmless.

However, all is well, now. According to the CW33, the Dallas Police Department said, “There was no criminal offense at the dispatched location, the owners of the livestock were located and the livestock was returned.”

After the incident, Lieutenant Terrence Rhodes tweeted a photo of himself and a fellow officer next to one of the suspicious cows. In reply, Cory McCoy‏ posted a screenshot of how many times wandering cows were reported to the authorities in just three days – five times!
