Fifty cows run riot in residential street after escaping from farm

Shocked neighbours in Trafford watched on as the farm animals grazed in gardens and damaged cars after escaping from Dunbar Farm in Sale.

 

Stephen Bell, a 45-year-old HGV driver, helped herd around 15 of the farm animals into a dead end, before calling the police.

“They went into a garden and I helped herd them into a dead end on Ripon Grove. They ended up in someone’s garden, ripping through all of the bushes. They were just eating grass without a care in the world.

 

“All the neighbours were out, as you can imagine.

“I have never herded cows before – there were about 15 of them. We just needed to get them calm and stop them running about to make sure they stayed in one area. One of the cows ended up damaging someone’s vehicle. I spoke to the farmer and he believes someone has let them out on purpose.”

 

A Greater Manchester Police spokesman said: “The cows have managed to free themselves from Dunbar Farm. We spoke to the farmer who said about 50 cows escaped.

 

“We are trying to get them back. He has got about 20 back so far. They have separated off into little clusters.”
