Cow on the loose caught in Milford

MILFORD - Milford officials have captured a cow that had been on the loose for months.

The cow escaped from an Orange farm in July. It had been spotted around Milford, but no one could grab it until last night.

It took more than 20 people to round it up and get it into a truck.

Animal control says the cow has been moved to a private farm in Oxford where it can live with other cattle.

Animal control officers say they found a tag on the calf's ear that they will use to try to track down the owner, who could possibly be responsible for paying the $25,000 bill for the search.
