Wayward cow creates chaos on Pleasanton streets
PLEASANTON -- A wayward cow wandered through the streets of Pleasanton Wednesday evening, badly damaging a Tesla before local ranchers were able to lasso and capture it.
Pleasanton city spokesperson Teri Yan told the East Bay Times that the cow got out onto Bernal Avenue about 5:50 p.m. and was on the loose for more than an hour.
During its evening stroll, the large cow visited a McDonald's parking lot among other stops with patrol vehicles in a 5 mph pursuit with lights flashing.
"It was running around exploring," Yan told the paper. "Going on a tour."
The cow also slammed into a Tesla, shattering the windshield and denting the vehicle.
A rancher on horseback pressed into service eventually was able to lassoed the wandering beast and load it into a cow trailer.
No injuries were reported to either the cow or any humans.
