Animal rescue tries to capture cow that escaped from Manorville farm

An animal rescue group is trying to track down a 750-pound cow that escaped a farm in Manorville.
Strong Island Animal Rescue says “Vienna” escaped from Jerry's Farms on Wading River Road three weeks ago and has been on the loose ever since.
The cow was last seen by a group of golfers at the Pine Hill Golf and Club in Manorville. It wasn't clear exactly when a video of the cow making its way across the fairway was taken. The rescue group posted the video on social media on Friday.
Long Islanders who spoke with News 12 Long Island said they were shocked to hear another bovine is on the move. “Barney the Bull” got loose last summer and was captured.
"We hope we can locate where she is. We're asking everyone to please stay back, let the professionals do what they have got to do," says Frankie Floridia, from Strong Island Animal Rescue.
Floridia says he and Eddie Stepinski from K9 Search and Rescue will be searching for Vienna.
"We'll put up cameras in the area and put out special food for the cow. Hopefully when the cow comes to eat it, it will come back for more," Stepinski says.
If found, the owner has agreed to surrender the cow and Floridia will bring it to Skylands Animal Sanctuary and Rescue in New Jersey. She will live out the rest of her life there -- and maybe even see Barney the Bull.
Floridia says if you see the cow, don't chase it but call 911 or Strong Island Animal Rescue at 631-403-0598.
