Vancouver Island RCMP on lookout for mischievous 'cow'

This "cow" was captured on camera playing ring and run in Campbell River.

RCMP have issued a bulletin for the capture of an elusive cow playing ring and run in a Vancouver Island community.

The creature was captured by a doorbell camera shortly after 10 p.m. on Dec. 3, according to a Campbell River RCMP media release.

“The slender dairy cow with a shock of blonde hair ascended the stairs to a home in the Penfield area, and rang the doorbell but neglected to stick around to talk to the owner who opened the door shortly after,” RCMP said.

“Amazingly, the cow left no hoof prints. Instead it left footprints with a strange swoosh pattern in them.”

The Campbell River incidents seem to involve a number of young people who have damaged items in people’s yards as they ran away after ringing the doorbell.

“The repetitive nature of the events which have occurred as late as 3 a.m. has stretched beyond fun to disturbing to many residents in the area,” RCMP said.

“On more than one occasion the young people have ended up being physically apprehended by residents who have hit their breaking point.”

The RCMP point out that ringing doorbells and running away may seem like a harmless prank but actually constitutes criminal mischief.
