After local officials were running around downtown Rockford like rodeo clowns, one Rockford news anchors had fun with this moooving story.

It wasn't breaking news per se but it certainly was worthy of highlighting on local news. Mike Garrigan at WIFR took advantage of this story and added necessary puns to make it even better. Garrigan started the story with a great tease.

... but still to come on 23 News at 6... a spotted cow... not a Wisconsin bar... but in the streets of downtown Rockford... how local officials were eventually able to ... steer... this creature in the right direction.

From there he threw in puns like, "a chase that could be described as *udderly ridiculous." And, it gets better from there. Check out the clip.

Well done, Mike Garrigan.
