NORTH RIVER, N.L. —

A cow on the loose in North River, Conception Bay North, didn't cause any problems thanks to local police.

At approximately 8:05 a.m. on Thursday, Sept. 5, Bay Roberts RCMP received a complaint of a cow on a roadway in North River.

Police officers responded and located the cow, a young bull from Bay Roberts, grazing on some grass along the roadway in North River.

While grazing on grass is not a violation, a roaming cow in the road is considered a danger to traffic. The cow peacefully allowed the officer to tie him to a nearby fence until his owner was located. The owner then walked the cow safely back to Bay Roberts.

Thankfully, there were no accidents or injuries.
