BARRON COUNTY, Wisc. (KARE) – Sheriff’s officials in Barron County, Wisconsin are expressing their appreciation to a bovine herd that played a role in ending a chase Monday night.
In a post on its Facebook page, the Barron County Sheriff’s Office described engaging in a 13-mile pursuit, along with local police officers, that led squads from Barron County to Cumberland County. That’s where the driver left the road and was blocked by a herd of cattle that the department half-jokingly referred to as “The Barron County Bovine Unit.”
An image from the scene shows that the cow crimefighters were extremely interested in the out-of-place vehicle and were not about to let it go past quietly.
Brandon and Kim Grewe of Valley Gem Farms are the owners of the now-viral-heifers. Brandon said he was already up in the early morning hours, checking on his calving cows when he heard a ruckus.
