Sometimes they too want to netflix and chill, go shopping, or even catch the latest movie.
The runaway cow was spotted by Trudi Maitland, 42, outside the Studio Cinema in Coleford, while on her way to work yesterday morning.
The mother-of-three, who snapped a photo of the hilarious encounter, said: ‘It was just pure amazement. I was thinking to myself, I wonder which one he fancies watching.’
After moving down the High Street, the cow wandered into the car park at the Forest of Dean District Council headquarters, where police kept watch and sent for the famer.
Other locals who saw the cow on the loose spoke of their shock at the whole thing.
Stephanie Marsden, who works in Mike’s Autos next to the cinema, actually walked past the cow without noticing.
She said: ‘Somebody called me into a doorway at Tesco and said you’ve just walked past a black cow.
‘People were standing around amazed. It’s not something you expect to see on Friday morning.’
A council employee said they were astonished as they walked their son to nursery and he pointed out the cow in the middle of the road.
‘It was really, really random. The cars had stopped for it and it then went into the council car park.
‘Somebody called the police who are with it now waiting for the farmer.’
