One cow was struck by a car and had to be euthanized after she and her half-sister wandered away from a farm in the River Plaza section of Middletown early Tuesday morning, police said.
The accident occurred at about 12:20 a.m. on West Front Street near Chris’ Deli, police said.
The sight of the second cow on the loose in a residential development near the Navesink River caused a stir among neighbors.
