Reference is often made about the agricultural sector by the people who live in the Region. For most, the closest they get to any live stock is at the Royal Winter Fair.

For those in the Milton area there was an experience waiting for them.

A rogue cow had gotten loose.

Let the Regional Police tell that story:

This is not a photo of the Halton Regional Police trying to coax a cow into getting back on the truck. It is a photo of what the police will be trying to do when they find the cow – not something they were taught at the police academy.

Police are issuing a caution to motorists travelling in the south end of the Town of Milton. Late Friday night, livestock were being unloaded from a trailer when a rogue cow escaped handlers. She is described as a black 900 lb. cow. The handlers and officers are currently trying to locate the animal.

The loose animal is not contained and has access to open roadways. Extreme vigilance should be exercised if travelling in south rural Milton overnight and into Saturday morning.

Police caution drivers to be careful driving in the areas of Highway 25 (Regional Road 25) between Lower Base Line and Britannia Road, and on Britannia Road between First Line and Thompson Road.

You will know it if you bump into it.
