Missing Fairfield cow found at local high school


If only the cow could talk.

Daesy, a fiberglass cow,  stolen from her pasture in front of Sunny Daes Ice Cream at 808 Post Road in Fairfield over the weekend, was found Monday afternoon near Fairfield Ludlowe High School.

Police report the cow, which stands 4 feet by 5 feet, about 400 pounds was stolen some time between 11:45 Friday night and 11 a.m. Saturday morning.

Around 1 p.m. Monday, Nov. 2, Fairfield Police responded the back of the school, near where Daesy was located. Police loaded the cow into a truck, to bring her back home.

Police and the store’s owner told reporters they believe the cow was taken as a Halloween prank. In 2005 Daesy was taken and found near the railroad tracks.

The cow is reportedly valued at $1,500.

HAN Network Audience Engagement Director Josh Fisher shot video at the scene. The HAN broadcasting team happened to be on location at Ludlowe when the cow was located, in preparation for the FCIAC Boys Soccer Semifinals. At 5 p.m. Greenwich takes on Darien. At 7 p.m., Ludlowe will face Danbury. The soccer semifinals are a pay-per-view event. Get more information at Championships.HAN.Network.
