A cow that had roamed in and around Plattsmouth, Neb., will remain the property of the man who finally roped her.
Plattsmouth Animal Control Officer Sue Baker said Monday that the animal — infamously known as the ninja cow — will remain at the farm of Terry Grell near Louisville, Neb. The cow became something of a local celebrity amid numerous sightings — and near captures — since mid-September.
The interest in the cow only increased when it was discovered that she had given birth to a calf. The calf was sold when efforts to corral its mother failed.
Baker said that when the mother cow left the calf for several hours, she consulted with a local cattle expert who said the calf could not survive more than 48 hours without milk. Baker said she made the decision to sell the calf to ensure that it received proper treatment.
Proceeds from the sale of the calf went to John and Jessica Vallery of rural Plattsmouth, who had captured it. Baker also praised the Vallerys for donating long hours in pursuit of the ninja cow.
