Of­fi­cers taken on a cow chase in Monto

Central and North Burnett Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

YES­TER­DAY Monto started the day with a cow wan­der­ing up New­ton St.

Staff at Café De­li­cious spot­ted the beast mak­ing its way through the rail yards and into the town cen­tre.

Therese Seeney, an em­ployee of the cafe, said she had never seen a cow walk­ing through Monto – that is, un­til yes­ter­day.

“It wan­dered up the foot­path and we thought it would walk into the cafe or an­other shop”, she said.

Coun­cil of­fi­cers were alerted to the sit­u­a­tion and at­tempted to catch the cow in New­ton St.

The chase led them through res­i­den­tial streets then out to a pri­vate prop­erty.

No one was injured in the chase, in­clud­ing the cow.
