Unusual visitor gets mooving and enjoys the sights

RESIDENTS in a regional town encountered an unusual guest enjoying a relaxing walk this morning.

On the morning of Thursday September 20, a cow was seen taking in the sights of Frangipani and Casuarina St after successfully executing its escape plan from its owner's property.

Nearby resident, Kasandra Pedler said it wasn't uncommon to see livestock getting out of the paddocks.

"He was probably just looking for water or a feed,” she said.

"We once had 80 head of cattle in our place after they knocked their fence down.”

Miss Pedler said like the rest of us, the cow would've just been interested in seeing what was beyond his fence.

"The grass is always greener on the other side, so they say,” she joked.

Miss Pedler, who phoned the owner of the cow to let them know it had gotten out, said if you saw a cow on the loose not to be concerned but to attempt to advise the owner.

"It's about looking out for your neighbour,” she said.

"Just knock on their door or even leave them a note and let them know.”
