Armed police shoot escaped heifer

‘Police marksmen have shot dead one heifer, but a second remains on the loose after the pair escaped from a Darlington cattle market.

Officers are searching the market town for the remaining animal described as “extremely dangerous”.

Commuters and shoppers have been warned to be on their guard as police say the heifer, weighing about half a ton, will attack anyone it sees. [..]

A spokesman for Durham Police said: “We cannot stress too highly how dangerous this animal is.

“It will attack anyone it sees and the public must not approach it in any circumstances.’
