Peel police say officers were kept busy Tuesday night as they searched for three cows that escaped from a Brampton farm.
Police said officers received reports around 10 p.m. of a couch in the roadway near Clarkway Drive and Mayfield Road in the northern part of the city, but arrived to discover that it was not a couch and was, in fact, a cow.
At 10:30 p.m., police tweeted, “Animal control enroute to help us moooove them along.”
About 45 minutes later, police tweeted a short video of officers using spotlights to keep an eye on the cows in a field as they tried to wrangle them.
Police added that there were two adults and a calf.
A police spokesperson told Global News that as of around 12:40 a.m. — nearly three hours after the initial call — one of the cows remained outstanding.
However, all of them have since been captured and brought back to their owners, the spokesperson said.
