MUNDIJONG thieves pulled off an udder-ly terrible heist over the weekend when they stole a fibreglass cow.

The cow-ardly crime occurred last Saturday night on Paterson Street.

The cow, whose legs were filled with concrete, had its front legs sawn off from the knee and was taken away.

All that was left of the cows was their legs.

Commenters on the Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale’s Facebook page were outraged at the theft.

“I saw (the cows) last week and thought how nice they were. I ask why can’t people just leave other people’s property alone,” one comment read.

“I think the cows were a lovely and fun addition to the Mundijong township, shame some idiots had to ruin it. I hope the cow is found and able to be repaired and returned,” another commenter said.

Mundijong Police said they were investigating the theft, but currently had no leads.

The Shire of Serpentine Jarrahdale and the Mundijong Community Association had installed three cows by the side of the road as a part of a beautification project.

The cows were initially purchased in 2011 as part of a locality grant, but had only been on Paterson Street since the start of August.

The Shire has urged anyone with information regarding the cow’s appearance to contact them or Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
