Florida cows thwart carjacking suspect, herd her straight toward police

Dana Mathewson

From the "Cops get unlikely help" files, here's one that'll surprise you. Or maybe not.

An alleged carjacking suspect almost got away from Florida police – only to be thwarted by a herd of pesky cows.

Police said the driver and a passenger in a stolen Subaru SUV fled on foot after the car crashed in a ditch in Sanford,WKMG-TV reported. Another passenger remained at the scene and was arrested.

The driver, identified as Jamie Michael Young, was apprehended with the help of a Sanford police dog, the Orlando Sentinel reported.

But the other passenger, Jennifer Kaufman, fled to a nearby field where she was corralled by cattle.

In a video released by the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office, which assisted in the incident, Kaufman can be seen running through a field with more than two dozen cows in pursuit. At least one cow got very close to the woman.

"If you see the large group of cows, they’re literally following her and chasing her,” an officer said in the video.

Eventually the cows herded her to the edge of a field where she climbed through what appears to be a fence, only to be immediately arrested.


Yep, that's no bull, folks. Apparently cows are pretty territorial when all is said and done. The farmer gives a good explanation in the article, found here


which contains the aforementioned video AND a photo of the woman, who looks to be one I wouldn't want to tangle with. No wonder the cows wanted her out of their field!
