Warning issued for cow missing from farm in Orange | WTNH.com Connecticut

Warning issued for missing cow
Jul 15, 2011 6:48 a.m.

Animal Control officials say a cow missing in near the Orange-West Haven city line could be a bit dangerous.

Animal Control Officer Rick George tells the New Haven Register that the 400-pound animal, which fled from a farm on Prindle Hill Road, is a "runner and a jumper" and could cause problems if it is approached.

He notes that a cow can jump up to 7 feet in the air.

He also worries the cow could run into a congested area of the city if approached.

The cow was last seen Tuesday night near Gulf Pond.

I just read on Wiki that the world record for men's high jump is 7ft 11.5 in ... so cows could be olympians if only they could learn the Fosbury Flop.

I would kill to see a cow jump 7ft.

On my recent trip to south africa I was driving down the N2 highway and I saw a cow running really fast along the other side of the guardrail a distance ahead. I just knew the sucker was a little nuts as I had never seen a cow run that fast before. I suspected it might jump the rail and get onto the highway so I braked. Sure enough, the cow cleared the guardrail, with a sideways jump while running and the car in front of me nearly hit it head on. That jump must have been 5 feet at least.

I can attest to this story. I spent my first three working years on a farm and I had a cow hop the fence on me and take off down the road. The fence was just under 6ft. I had to bolt down the road in my coveralls and rubber boots and try to use a ski poll to force the cow back into another field.

The whole time I was running (roughly 200m) the other cows were trying to follow suit. Thankfully I got it back inside the fence before another jumped.
