Police in Sanford, Florida had a herd of 20 cows helping them pursue a woman running through a field after she tried to flee during a police stop on Friday. When authorities realized the vehicle Jennifer Kaufman had been a passenger in was stolen, deputies used spike strips to stop the vehicle, however the car continued through a stop sign. Moments later, the Subaru SUV crashed into a ditch, and from there – a herd of cows moved in on the chase.
According to the Facebook page of the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, the driver of the car ran into the pasture heading east while Kaufman took a wrong turn and suddenly found herself in a cow pasture. And there they went – an angry herd of about 20 cows chased her. For Kaufman, it was an “udder” disaster.
“A group of cows provided law enforcement a big assist, repeatedly following and helping corral one who strayed onto their turf.”

One of the cows appeared to have caught up with the woman, but the woman was quickly apprehended by Seminole County deputies. The cow retreated.
The owner of the property Richard Kondracki thinks the cows were protecting their calves. A neighbor thought the cows might have been expecting food from the woman. In the end, three arrests were made; 1.3 grams of cocaine were found along with drug paraphernalia. Kaufman, accomplices Jamie Young and Erin Thomas were arrested and face charges of drug possession, trespassing and resisting arrest.
No getting past those cows on the “moove” deputies stated!
