BOXFORD, Mass. (The Blaze/AP) -- There's nothing like a pilsner from a good 'ol red Solo cup. Except, in this instance, the cups were blue and the party goers -- or crashers rather -- were cows. Police say a roving group of cows crashed a small gathering in a Massachusetts town and bullied the guests for their beer.
Boxford police Lt. James Riter says he was responding to a call for loose cows on Sunday and spotted them in a front yard.
Watch the bovine crashers caught on film:
Riter says the herd high-tailed it for the backyard and then he heard screaming. He says when he ran back there he saw the cows had chased off some young adults and were drinking their beers. WCVB has more details on the crashing:
"I could hear them [the girls] screaming in the backyard and I hoped they weren’t getting trampled," said Riter. He witnessed about 10-13 young people run from a picnic table where they had been drinking beer when the cows arrived. The young women all jumped up on the rear deck of the house to avoid contact with the cows.
Meanwhile, the party cows were helping themselves to the beer, knocking the beer-filled cups off the table. "I saw one cow drinking the beer on its way down as it spilled off the table," the lieutenant said.
Riter says they even started rooting around the recycled cans for some extra drops.
When the incident was reported, Riter says the cows' owner and some friends herded the cattle back home.
