Forty escaped cows roam Brabant town
Some 40 cows escaped from their pasture on Friday morning and spent a few happy hours roaming around the Noord-Brabant town of Bladel, near the border with Belgium.
The police received the first report of the escaped cows around 5:00 a.m. on Friday, according to NU.nl.
The police and municipality both placed calls on their social media pages, looking for experienced farmers to help capture the animals. The cows were finally rounded up near the center of Bladel and near Hulsel. They were loaded into a trailer and returned to their pasture.
According to the police, the cows cased "no real" dangerous situations, and no people or cows were hurt.
Vanmorgen zijn uit een weiland in #Bladel ongeveer 40 koeien ontsnapt. De eerste melding kwam kort na 5.00 uur bij ons binnen toen een automobilist de koeien in de omgeving van het Helleneind zag lopen richting het centrum. https://t.co/PpvTazRCG9 …— Politie Eenheid Oost-Brabant (@Pol_OostBrabant) November 24, 2017
