Runaway Cow Heads To Movie Theater To Beat The Heat


ITV News

We’re firmly in the dog days of summer, as every time I step out of my apartment, I feel like the sweltering, humid air is going to melt my face off like the bad guys in Raiders of the Lost Ark. But as everybody, including a runaway cow in Coleford, Gloucestershire, England knows, the best way to beat the heat is to head to your local theater.

You pick out a flick, get an obnoxiously large popcorn and soda, kick your feet up, and enjoy that sweet, sweet AC. Check out the tweet below of a cow trying its damnedest to get a brief escape from the hellscape that is summer.

Via Metro, here are more details on the four-legged cinefile.

The runaway cow was spotted by Trudi Maitland, 42, outside the Studio Cinema in Coleford, while on her way to work yesterday morning.

The mother-of-three, who snapped a photo of the hilarious encounter, said: ‘It was just pure amazement. I was thinking to myself, I wonder which one he fancies watching.’

After moving down the High Street, the cow wandered into the car park at the Forest of Dean District Council headquarters, where police kept watch and sent for the farmer.

Unfortunately for our bovine friend, the cow was captured with the help of police before it could head into the theater. What an udder shame.
