The escaped cows on Abbots Road


A herd of cows were spotted running around Whitby’s East side on Thursday morning after escaping from a field.

The four cows made their way along Abbots Road at around 8.30am before heading down Spital Bridge. The animals then made their way up Green Lane and entered a field.

In April a runaway cow was shot by armed police after it was deemed a danger to the public, and a police spokesperson said: “We do occasionally hear of people being seriously hurt by cows, so if you see one in the street, stay out of its way and call a local farmer or the police for help.”
