It’s funny how things go in cycles. Last week during the full moon, I heard about two herds of cows who got loose. One was in Butler County and the other in Clark County. In both instances the cows got loose and just wandered around until they were herded back.

The Butler County cows sought their freedom early in the morning while it was still dark and it took local authorities awhile to round them up because they couldn’t see them. I heard that they made a second attempt at freedom once they were all found, but the second attempt didn’t work for long. The fence has been repaired and for now their traveling days are over.

The Clark County cows were caught on video tape by people in the subdivision where they visited. They were just sort of roaming through yards, munching on grass and checking out cars and houses. It was like a mini-vacation for them, I guess. Seeing sights they don’t normally see and just enjoying life on the other side of the fence. They are all back in their pasture now, but I’m sure they have some good memories of their taste of freedom.

As I was in the process of writing about these cows, I received the following e-mail and it just seems to fit here.

Is it just me, or does anyone else find it amazing that during the mad cow epidemic our government could track a single cow, born in Canada almost three years ago, right to the stall where she slept in the state of Washington? And, they tracked her calves to their stalls. But they are unable to locate 11 million illegal aliens wandering around our country. Maybe we should give each of them a cow.
