Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep.
Employees of a McDonald's in Texas must have thought this was a prank. They were serving up Big Macs and cheeseburgers when a cow wandered into the drive-thru line. The cow was on the loose in the Fort Worth area and nobody knew where it came from. When authorities shot the animal with tranquilizers it kept on running. Finally, a police sergeant lassoed the cow, one of many that came to McDonald's in one form or another over the years and one of the few that ever left alive.
