Cows in A North Carolina Small Town Help Lead Police To A Fleeing Suspect
This story is so North Carolina, I love it!
North Carolina authorities in Boone had some unlikely help in finding a suspect last week; cows. According to a post on the Town of Boone Police Department Facebook, cows helped lead police to a fleeing suspect.
Here’s what happened:
The suspect, Joshua Russell Milton, flied Boone Police Officers during a traffic stop. He left his car in Deep Gap before fleeing on foot. The problem was, officers didn’t see where the suspect went.
Luckily some vigilant cows were nearby and alerted officers that something unwanted… aka Mr. Milton, was in their pasture. The cows were able to lead investigators right to the suspect, and he was arrested.
We’ve heard of a K-9 unit, but should there be a Cow-9 unit too? I think so!
Shout out to these hilarious cows that not only helped lead police to a suspect, but also gave me my favorite news story of the year so far!
