Columbia police were called to College Avenue on Saturday afternoon to quarantine a cow that had made its way onto the road. Police said the black cow was spotted heading south on the road.

Joseph Fischer, who witnessed the incident, said he saw the cow go up a hill next to a ravine and witnessed two people whistling at the animal in an attempt to get it into a trailer on the back of a truck.

Columbia Police said they were unable to find the cow and do not know where it came from.
