It’s just downright rude to take a cow through the McDonald’s drive-thru. That’s like saying, “Yup, buddy, this could be you one day.” Though, surely, the visit was much less morose, a local Wisconsin resident really rolled through the fast-food restaurant with a cow in the back, like it was just a large pup.
Of course, someone was there, phone in hand, to capture the bizarre incident. It gathered more attention when the video was posted to Facebook by Jessica Nelson, according to local station WIS10.
“I was in awe and couldn’t believe I was the only one videoing the cow,” Nelson said.
Sure enough, the video shows a line of cars at McDonald’s with a cute, brown cow riding in the backseat. It appears to be totally at ease just peeking out the window like this is a routine event.
“Tell me you live in Wisconsin without telling me you live in Wisconsin,” Nelson captioned her Facebook post.
Further, Nelson said there were two other cows in the backseat, though they were having a bit of a lie-down.
It’s unclear if the driver actually ordered anything for the giant animals. Cows in cars -are we shocked by anything at this point in 2021?
Cows on the Loose
In another video that had people asking about quirky cow behavior, a group of 40 bovines made a run for it after escaping a meatpacking facility in California.
The cows broke into a full stampede in a Los Angeles neighborhood shortly after 7 p.m. Their evening escape came to a halt quickly, however. They had a little over an hour of freedom.
“An hour later, the cows were still loose and managed to make their way to a residential neighborhood over a mile away from the facility. One cow charged at a family of four, knocking some of them to the ground. To protect the family from further injury, a Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputy shot and killed the animal. The family members were transported to a local hospital where they were treated for minor injuries,” the department stated in a press release.
In the video, the cows are running down the street in the quiet neighborhood, increasing their speed and jumping over a fence, causing it some damage. It’s even possible to hear the pitter-patter of their synchronized run. Some people in the streets attempt to get close to the cows in order to take capture some footage.
After authorities rounded up the majority of the animals, it was back to the meatpacking facility.
“Of the forty, thirty-eight were safely captured, one was shot, and one has not been located,” authorities said in the news release.
At least one lucky cow escaped the clutches of a tragic end. Hopefully, he’s on a new adventure now, safe and sound.
