Cows on the loose in Boxford, Mass., crashed a backyard party last weekend, and went right for the beer.
“They enjoyed it. There’s no doubt about it. They went right for the beer and then when one was done, they’d knock another one over and take care of that beer,” Lt. James Riter of the Boxford Police Department told NBC affiliate WHDH.com.
Police said they heard reports of screams from a group of women as five or six cows stumbled into the yard, eagerly hurtling toward the beers.
A caller told the 911 dispatcher: “We thought they were deer, but they're huge, huge, huge cows. There's got to be five or six of them.”
Andrea Poritzky also called 911 after spotting "about six cows" in her yard.
A police escort rounded up the cows and returned them to a farm about a mile away.
