In a moovie-worthy tale, Matylda the Polish cow has been caught after two years on the run.
The bovine absconder disappeared from a farm in Zloty Stok in 2013, and had been enraging local farmers by snacking on their crops. Matylda’s legendairy adventures included evading a series of traps (and a vet with tranquilisers) by sneaking into a forest, and surviving two winters.
She’s now safe and sound but did lose a calf along the way, and now wears several scars. Maybe there is such a thing as ‘too free-range’.
