After weeks on the lam, wandering cow rescued in woods
The wandering New Britain cow has come home.
For more than three weeks, a steer named Finn, has been hoofing it up on New Britain watershed property after escaping from the city’s west end while being taken to auction, according to city officials.
Thanks to the efforts of a dedicated city resident who repeatedly left hay and water in the woods at the watershed and Farm Sanctuary, a farm animal rescue outfit out of Watkins Glen, New York, Finn was corralled late Tuesday night and is on his way to a new home, according to The New Britain Herald.
“The cow is rescued and is being ‘mooved’ out of state,” Mayor Erin Stewart tweeted Wednesday. She also gave credit to Farm Sanctuary which worked with city officials to capture Finn.
His disappearance prompted concern among local animal advocates and city officials who had no way to lure the animal to safety.
He also prompted a few catchy phrases including “Experience the Moo,” a play on the city’s motto “Experience the New.”
