CHICAGO (CBS) — Holy cow, neighbors in suburban Mundelein got quite a surprise Monday morning. 

The Mundelein Police Department reported "udder chaos" as a stray Highland cow was spotted in a yard. "Nothing gets you mooving on Monday like a stray cow call," police said in a Facebook post. 

Police said the bull is a "repeat offender" and has been returned to his owner.

Highland cows are known for their long, shaggy hair. 

In April of 2023, a senior prank went awry when a loose cow trotted through a neighborhood in Niles. 

Police determined the students bought the cow and a pig on Craiglist. Police worked with Wagner Farms in nearby Glenview to secure the cow.
