Runaway Cows Get Back Home

Posted: Updated:

GRAFTON, N.Y. (AP) — Five cows that went on the lam are back home in upstate New York thanks to a quick-thinking emergency dispatcher and a Facebook post.

State police say the cows were spotted Saturday wandering along State Route 2 in Grafton, about 20 miles northeast of Albany.

They say troopers corralled the "feisty" creatures into a yard until a Rensselaer County dispatcher figured out where they belonged.

The dispatcher saw a Facebook post from the family of a farmer asking if anyone had seen their missing cattle.

Authorities contacted the farmer and the cows were returned safely.
