A black cow got loose and roamed the Lewiston Orchards for several hours one morning while police tried to wrangle the ornery oxen. It was the laughing livestock of the town until it was corralled into a pasture. Police chased it first from the 3500 block of 11th Street down to Burrell and Thain then hoofed it to 10th and Richardson before the burly bovine was contained in a fenced area. The ruminant somehow bounced out and hopped the fence but was again secured behind a fence on the 1000 block of Alder. The stockyard was called to take it back to be with its own kine. The cow’s owner was not found since there is no cattlelog of ranchers who own black cows.

In other cow-related news, a Kendrick man went to the Nez Perce County Sheriff’s Office reporting that several head of cattle got onto his land and destroyed $2,000 worth of crops. The man rounded up the cattle and trucked them to the sheriff’s office as hoof proof. Officers noted that yes, they looked like well-fed cattle and took the bovine to a local stockyard.
