PLATTSMOUTH, Neb. (AP) – A cow that has been roaming free near the eastern Nebraska city of Plattsmouth since September has been captured.
The roughly 1,500-pound cow was captured Wednesday afternoon.
She was loaded onto a trailer and taken to a farm near Louisville.
A trio of cowboys on horseback finally corralled the cow on Wednesday. Terry Grell of Louisville, Neil Johnson of Nehawka, and Greg Eisenbarth of Plattsmouth, succeeded where many others had failed.
The cow had been dubbed the “ninja cow” for her ability to appear and vanish like the elusive Japanese assassins. She was captured briefly on Tuesday before slipping away again. It’s believed she originally fell off a cattle truck and began wandering around Plattsmouth, hiding in the woods on the north side of town.
