One cow remains unaccounted for as of Wednesday morning, according to police, after Steinbach had an unexpected visit from five bovines that began on Tuesday afternoon.

A trailer door swung open while being pulled by a truck down Brandt Road, releasing the cows onto the street.

The trailer was destined for the Hazelridge area, said RCMP Sgt. Joanne Ryll, after the cattle had been purchased at the Grunthal Auction Mart.

As of Wednesday morning, Ryll said one cow, who she has affectionately dubbed "Betsy", was still missing.

Ryll said police received a call around 5 a.m. about another sighting. She surmised the final wayward cow was headed south of the city.

The four other escapees were corralled on Tuesday.
