Jul 29, 2008 News Comments Off on Cow leads police on two-hour chase
“If they can’t catch a cow, how they gon catch de bandits? “ one resident of Uitvlugt said, after police on the West Coast of Demerara tried desperately to haul in a bovine that caused significant damage to one of their vehicles, yesterday.
Kaieteur News understands that the ranks tried for about two hours to reign in the animal to get a look at its brand with a view to prosecuting its owner.
According to reports, the police were proceeding along the Uitvlugt Public Road when they struck one of the many cows wandering on the roadway.
The police vehicle was significantly damaged, but it was obvious that the animal only suffered minor injuries, since it kept avoiding capture no matter how desperately the police and other public-spirited persons tried.
The ranks ran until they were exhausted. Some sat at the side of the road and some begged to give up the chase, but they remembered the surcharge for the damage to the vehicle.
It was as if the cow was mocking them, because, when they stopped, the cow pretended to ignore them, but as soon as they rushed, the cow ran. It was laugh galore! In the end they succeeded in capturing the animal.
Eventually, after almost two hours, the animal was finally caught and tied to another police vehicle, and taken to the Leonora Police Station. This newspaper was unable to ascertain if the animal was branded.
Many motorists have had to cut their losses after coming into contact with several herds that frequent the public roads, because they were not branded.
But the police are certain that they will not suffer the same fate, and have vowed that whoever owns the animal will have to pay dearly.
