Roaming cows create havoc at Massachusetts cemetery
First Published Jan 31 2013 07:13 pm • Last Updated Jan 31 2013 07:13 pm

Southampton, Mass. • The vandals that damaged a Massachusetts cemetery this week have pleaded "moo."

Police say a small herd of cows knocked over 40 American flags and veterans’ bronze grave markers, then snacked on a few flower arrangements, at the Center Cemetery in Southampton on Monday.

Motorists called to report that the cows were loose. Police contacted the owner, Henry Wykowski, who caught and removed the cows from the cemetery.

Chief David Silvernail says the cows are an "ongoing problem," and his department has responded to complaints about the roaming bovines three or four times since last spring.

Cemetery Commission member Robert Floyd tells The Daily Hampshire Gazette he plans on asking the farmer to pay for the damage once he comes up with an estimate.
