    Yes, Bessie got loose. A trucker was kind enough to stop and try to help me round her up. He explained where the "gates" are in a section of fence and how-to use them.
    Sounds like it was a lot more fun than my domestic assault.

I've arrested armed robbers. I have negotiated the release of a hostage from an armed & barricaded suspect. I have talked out an armed suspect who shot at police. I have talked jumpers down. I have grabbed jumpers on very high-rise buildings. I'm now in a place where the tallest building is usually only two stories.
    I didnt read the rest because you said to guess what your first call was right? Im gonna say it was a "Domestic", and upon arriving on the scene, you observed two male subjects, naked, covered in peanut butter and saltine crackers with one guy holding skittles in one hand and the other male subject holding a pickup truck battery connected to some jumper cables. Am I close?

    It's the Mutant-Saltwater variety that gives the most issues with non-compliance.

    Road patrol when I was a deputy 1979 or so

    VERY dark night with no moon-------------call of a prowler at the dairy barn (in use as a feeder cattle barn at the them) of the prison where I now work-------------cut the lights as we entered the prison grounds and drove up the lane to the dairy barn----pretty fast-------well too fast.



    Saw six sets of eyeballs flash past the passenger door...........applied brakes FAST and HARD.

    Turned on spot and alley lights............................I am now sitting in the middle of a herd of 700-800 lbs black angus beef cattle and see more than six sets of eyes NONE bigger than those of my partner and I.


    Quickly found out that the whole area around the barn was a pasture------with a gateless cattle crossing gate at the entrance.




    Inched to the barn, checked out and found all doors secure.........Inched down the lane and exited the prison grounds and went 10-8 UTL.

    Stopped at prison to use rest room to clean out pants.

    Back when I worked in TN, a rookie working in my area got a "cow in the road" call. I wasn't too far away and I knew this was a new guy from the city and wanted to see what entertainment value may arise. Upon arrival, I could barely keep my unit on the road from laughing so hard. This guy had decent size calf (baby cow) by the neck and he was trying to drag it out of the road. when I regained my composer. I told him to let go of the calf, and it ran around in a few circles, then went into the ditch. I bumped my airhorn a few time and the calf ran off a little farther. I hit the airhorne a few more times until the calf was out of site and the problem was resolved. The new guy just kept his head down a little while shaking it saying 'no one ever showed me how to do that". I would put up a good chunk of money to have had that on video.

    Hey Keith....I know you won't believe this, but every once in awhile on a lonely PM watch out in the country or, on a Sunday afternood patrol of some forgotten highway, I would sometimes pull into the ditch next to a couple of Guernseys staring at me, and stare back.

    And then, when I was sure I was alone, I would "MOOO" at 'em.

    book of cattle-chapter 1

    Hello folks! I am new to this forum and was have not yet posted on the welcome forum but I could not pass this one up. I work in a very rural county and cattle on the roadway are such a problem that whenever we receive a "cow out" our dispatch automaticlly looks up the location in our "cow book". I have literally spent about half a shift or more just responding to "cow out". REAL FUN! (not). I also tried the OC spray once, got a new dent on my patrol unit. DON'T suggest it. I usually try and scare them with lights and siren back into someone's (anyone's) pasture. :

    OK...I have to ask.....how does one handle a cattle in the road call?

    Here is what I, a city folk, would think to do. Turn on all lights and sirens and scare the BeJesus out of said cattle...

    Baker 4 to radio...roadway is clear, 10-8

    Welcome to MY jungle, pal!

    Just wait till you get a big ol' glop of cow sh** all over your last clean uniform.

    Makes Crenshaw and Normandie look easy again, yes?
