BRUSH, Colo. -- A cow named Darcy is receiving a lot of attention in theEastern Plains town of Brush. Darcy recently escaped from her pen andhoofed it a half a mile to the local McDonald's.
Darcy is a good cow and normally doesn't get in totrouble. But her owners say when she's bored, she'll do anything to getattention - including busting out of her pen.
"We got a call from dispatch asking if my son had a dairy cow. Isaid, 'Yeah, he has a dairy cow,' and she said it's up at McDonalds,"Sandy Winn, Darcy's owner, said.
Darcy's son, Zach, was baffled, but found it quite funny. His mother interrupted his track meet to tell him about it.
"She [Darcy] can be stubborn, but she can also be sweet," Zach Winn said.
The family has been making jokes about it, saying Darcy was going to McDonald's to visit her former relatives.
"Not making any orders. Maybe visiting relatives, but not making orders," Sandy Winn laughed.
People inside the McDonald's snapped pictures of Darcy and got a kick out of it themselves.
Eventually, Darcy's family was able to round her up and bring her back home.
The family was not fined, since Brush doesn't have any "cow-at-large" laws.
