Cattle Drive Rattles i-395
On the evening of Friday, June 29, 2018, 14 cows from Normandry Farm LLC on Norman Rd in Griswold, owned and operated by George P. Norman and Anne Guillemette, escaped through a broken fence. The fence broke after a tree fell on it the day before. All 14 unnamed cows live in a barn close to I-395, which is where the heifers found themselves grazing. Twelve of the cows were “steered” to the side of the road by Connecticut State Troopers, whereas one made her way back to the barn, and another “showed up the next day.” Since being brought home, the fence has been repaired and the bovines are once again corralled.
After interviewing one of the escapees, Henrietta Heifer, we learned that these girls had a lot at “steak.” Henrietta tells us at Wolverine Radio that the cows were udderly terrified after getting lost on the interstate and are glad to be back home. They apologize tremendously, and hope the farm owners don’t have a cow.
