MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A husband and wife were not hurt after their minivan struck a cow Friday night in Stearns County.

The sheriff’s office says the couple, from Avon, were traveling southbound on County Road 9 in Holding Township when a whiteface heifer started crossing the roadway just south of 400 Street.

The heifer was hit and killed. A local farmer helped move the animal victim from the road.

The sheriff’s office says they were able to track down the cow’s owner Saturday morning.

  1. Oh Boy, this is important news of the day. IMHO, the downward spiral of the once revered “CCO continues to accelerate!
