Bovines boldly brave streets for taste of freedom

MIAMI-DADE COUNTY, Fla. - Holy cow!

Several cows were on the loose Friday morning roaming a northwest Miami-Dade County neighborhood.

Sky 10 was flying above the area of Northwest 186th Street and Northwest 87th Avenue, where several cows were seen wandering.

The cows were seen cutting through a backyard, strolling down a street and no doubt receiving plenty of stares from passing drivers.

One mamma cow even had a calf following close behind her as they made their way onto someone's driveway.

"Honestly, I've only seen, like, the cows over there in the field," Hialeah resident Karl Schmidt said. "That's pretty much it."

Schmidt said they could have been a traffic hazard.

"What would you do if you saw a cow on the loose?" Local 10 News reporter Madeleine Wright asked Hialeah resident Jimmy Obando.

"Stop and call the police maybe," he answered.

When Miami-Dade police arrived, the cows left, presumably to go back from where they came.

"I think it's negligence on the part of the owners, because normally those animals are confined," northeast Miami-Dade County resident Guillermo Martinez said.

Nobody -- either cow or human -- was hurt.
