Police in Boxford, Massachusetts had to respond to a truly bizarre call the other evening. The town’s police received a call around 9 p.m. on a Sunday evening, reporting that six cows were loose on the Main Street of the town of 8,000.
Officers responded and tracked the cows for a while, but then the herd of six made a mad dash away from the cops. They stumbled upon a gathering of 12 to 13 teenage girls who had been enjoying their Sunday evening with drinking games in a backyard.
The cows crashed the party and began drinking some of the beer. The girls were startled.
“I saw one cow drinking the beer on its way down as it spilled off the table,” Lt. James Riter told WickedLocal Boxford (who has a photo). “Some of the cows were also picking through the empties in the recycling bin. They just went in and helped themselves.”
Apparently, the cows didn’t want to leave.
“Because the cows were having such a good time at the [party] house, it was hard to get them to leave,” area resident Peter Perkins said. “Once we got them started, there was a lot of hollering and yelling to keep them moving. We had a cruiser positioned at the front and back of the cows.”
