Holy Cow. Holmdel Bovines Spotted Off Parkway

Holmdel Police are called to wrangle cows on the loose, near GSP Exit 114 on the Holmdel/Middletown border.


Three Holmdel cows from the W.H. Potter Farm got past a broken fence on Thursday, and wandered a bit too close to the Garden State Parkway. 

NJ State Police rang up the Holmdel PD to report cows on the loose. Together, with workers from the farm, Holmdel Police tracked down a black, white, and spotted cow near Twin Brooks Court, off Galloping Hill Circle, where apparently the grass was greener. They were herded back home and into their red trailer. 

"It was just some dopey cows that decided to go out for a walk," said Bill Von Pier, a repair shop worker who helped rassle the rascal cows. "They never got onto the Parkway."

He explained that a tree must have fallen on the fence, damaging it, during a recent storm, and the cows saw an opportunity.  

The animals' owner was away on vacation, Von Pier said. 

No summonses were issued, said Holmdel Police Lt. Michael Smith.

They're not dopey...they just wanted to go out on a stroll... :-)

Nah, they were just milking their moment of temporary freedom.

If there owners weren't on vacation, I suppose they'd be waiting until the cows come home.
