Domestic Violence Call Leads To Police Discovery Of Cow In The Basement – Wait, WHAT?!?!?

Posted on December 5, 2012


Wisconsin (The Gaslamp Post) – Police responding to a domestic disturbance call in Beloit on Sunday encountered something that they more than likely didn’t see coming.  As it turns out, a couple’s argument started over a cow, or calf rather, that they kept in the basement.

Yes, you read that correctly; they had a cow in their basement.

According to Channel, the whole thing started because a husband became upset that his children were not feeding the calf properly.  Soon the argument became physical, and the man reportedly assaulted his wife.

How to speak Wisconsin: “Glamor Pet”

Yup, that’ll learn ‘er!

According to a police statement:

“(Police) discovered the domestic disturbance originated over the fact that the children were not feeding the cow that was being kept in the basement of the house,” said Capt. Vince Sciame, of the Beloit Police Department.

“The husband was upset that the cow hadn’t been fed properly by the children, or children were supposed to feed the calf and they hadn’t done so; he got upset about that and assaulted his wife.”

The calf was reportedly only a few weeks old, and was malnourished.  It was taken into protective custody by police and has been placed in the hands of a local animal shelter.

The couple was cited for a code violation of keeping livestock within city limits.  Police still have no idea where the calf came from.
