EASTON, Pa. (AP) -- Three cows that wandered off a farm have been hoofing around suburban Easton for about three months, defying efforts to bring them home.
Williams Township Manager Jeff Marsh said the township has gotten a few phone calls about roaming cattle, but nobody has filed a formal complaint so far. Officials are looking into the matter, he said.
''A couple of people called to say, 'I have cows in my back yard at night,''' Marsh said. At least one resident reported not being able to back out of her driveway because cows were blocking it and refusing to move.
Residents in the town of 2,800 said the animals have not caused any damage.
Township officials are trying to figure out if the owner is violating any laws. Marsh said the township is advising people to call state police if the cattle damage their property.
Shirley Cavallo, whose family owns the cows, said the family is working to lure them back. She speculated that hunters knocked down a fence, allowing the cattle to escape.
''The township is changing so much, they don't know where they belong,'' she said of the cows.
