The crazy story started Thursday, when the cow’s owner reported it missing. The next day, residents in Medford started calling in about an unusual sighting.

That’s just about the time the brown-and-white cow got angry, hurling itself into the side of a cruiser, denting it.

Soon, the officers managed to corral the cow into an abandoned property and tranquilized it.

No one, including the officer in the car the cow rammed, was injured in the process.
