Police hunt renegade cow sex youth

Nocturnal bovine botherer caught in the act

Combat fraud and increase customer satisfaction

Warning: no IT angle North Yorkshire police are on a state of high alert after a youth was spotted coupling with an English longhorn cow at a specialist breeder's farm in Skipwith, The Sun reports.

The lad was clocked at 4.30am, dressed only in black briefs, by a "shocked" passer-by who interruped proceedings by shouting at the nocturnal bovine botherer. A 999 call alerted the authorities, but when officers arrived at the scene, the perp had made good his escape.

Farmer Richard Parish also declared himself "shocked", adding: "English longhorns are lovely animals - but not that lovely. My mates are having a right laugh and milking it for all it is worth."

Parish believes he has identified the victim - one of three longhorns on the farm - as Blondie, described as the "friendliest" of the bunch. The psychological effect on the animal is not noted, but Parish said: "I have got to be much more vigilant. The cows don't seem to be spending so much time outside and are happier inside the barn at night."

Residents of Skipwith, population 300, do not believe the outrage was committed by a local, and police night-time patrols are "on the alert in case he strikes again". They said: "We are treating this matter seriously." ®
