RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Some good news! A cow that broke free in the city Saturday has a new farm to call home.
Richmond Police on Saturday lassoed in a five-month-old calf named “Buttercup.” Officers still aren’t sure how the calf got loose on Barton Avenue, or who her original owner was. However, Richmond Animal Control took her in and found a family to adopt her.
Buttercup will now live on a 32-acre farm with another pet cow. The family’s daughter recently lost her steer to cancer, and they say Buttercup will be her new best friend!
