Man in cow suit robs Walmart of 26 gallons of milk
Yahoo ^ | Apr 28, 2012 | Liz Goodwin

Posted on 04/28/2011 9:26:34 PM PDT by tlb

A man dressed in a cow suit managed to rob a busy Stafford, Virginia Walmart of 26 gallons of milk on Tuesday night before being nabbed by the cops.

Apparently, the cow-suited criminal escaped the megastore by crawling out the doors, "trying to emulate cattle." He then began handing out the stolen jugs right outside the store before making his escape, in a sort of bovine interpretation of Robin Hood.

Stafford County Sheriff's office spokesman, Bill Kennedy, tells us that he believes the cow suit did not entirely cover the suspect's face, making him easy to spot at the near-by McDonalds.

"I gotta tell you it's our first cow shoplifter," Kennedy said of the unusual crime.

Over 300 story comments. One suggested instead of shoplifting, the charge should have been some sort of moooving violation.

All puns aside, how did the guy get 26 gallons of milk out of the store? Did he put them in his cow suit? If he was crawling out of the store, could he still push a cart? Cows produce milk but this was a man. Bull?

Any time I see a cow story, I inevitably think of Gary Larson and the Far Side...

I’m calling BS.

That much milk would have weighed over 200lbs.

Unless that 18 year old was actually the size of a cow, I’m doubting he hauled that many gallons out of the store.

In our Obama depression, even cows cannot afford milk for their young.

Must have been one of the Chick Filet cows, gone criminal.

Well done.

I didn’t even make the connection when I first heard the story.

The question is, how did she manage to stash the cow suit in the guy’s car so he’d take the fall?
