Wild Video Shows a Cow Pursuit in Illinois After Student Prank
Who let the cows out? I realize that's not the name of the song, but there was a real heifer pursuit that played itself out in a busy Illinois city neighborhood after some students tried to bring animals to school as part of an organized prank. The key word is "tried".
ABC 7 out of Chicago shared this crazy moment where a Niles, Illinois neighborhood became a cowboy corral as officers tried to
lasso secure a cow on the loose.
The students bought a cow off of Craigslist from Wisconsin and didn't quite make it to school when the dairy provider decided to make a break for it. The report says that they first learned of this cow on the run when neighbors reported "suspicious subjects in the area". You don't say?
The other animals the students tried to bring to school included a pig and some chickens. No word if they were found or not.
The good news is no one was injured and that includes the animal so we can laugh about this student prank that went wrong. I was probably guilty of a few tricks gone wrong during my school years, so I'm not judging.
Let's hope that any future organized student livestock efforts will only happen within the guidelines of 4H.
