Town Invaded by Rampaging Cattle

‘”It’s not like a milking cow. They’re huge – those horns – you don’t know if they’re going to attack or what they’re going to do,” said Sharri Matronic, adding that the cattle have destroyed a retaining wall in her yard and eaten her azaleas and ivy. [..]

“I can walk up and pet them,” Echard said.

That doesn’t impress police Officer Rich Michelsen, who recently had to use his patrol car, flashing lights turned on, to herd one of the cattle away from the police station in this town of 3,100 about 25 miles northeast of Seattle.

“People think it’s funny,” Michelsen said. “It’s tiring, is what it is.”‘
