The cow had escaped from the Logan County Animal Clinic on Hopkinsville Road. She then made her way over to Main Street, where she was seen passing Blockbuster and then strolled through the Square, followed by two police cars.
People lined the streets to watch the cow come through town. She took a right towards the library and made her way through several yards, much to the surprise of the residents there.
Police officers and the dog warden were trying to contain her, but she continued to allude all those in pursuit. The cow then headed through a field behind Post Oak Baptist Church and back into a neighborhood. Men with ropes tried unsuccessfully to lasso her.
Sheriff's deputies considered using their new Taser gun on her, but could not get close enough. After wandering through Village Green Mobile Home Park, the cow crossed the railroad tracks and took a break in a field, where a stand-off began. The police officers and others involved in the chase kept their distance and waited for a tranquilizer gun.
When one finally arrived, Dr. Paul Conroy was able to shoot the cow. She was put on a trailer and later returned home.
