Cow Kidnapped, Sheep Decapitated in Brazen Attack of Hillbilly Nativity Scene
Whatever the case, the good people of Laurie, Missouri, are today left questioning who stole the hand-painted, wooden cow from the town's nativity scene.
According to an account of the crime on a Lake of the Ozark's website, volunteers installed the nativity scene last Monday at the town park, known affectionately as the Laurie Hillbilly Fairgrounds.
Coming back to do more work the next day, the workers discovered that the cow had been broken loose from its mounting and was gone. Whoever took the cow had also tried to take the sheep. In the attempt to loose the sheep from its moorings, its head was broken off.Town officials estimate that the amount of the damage could reach triple digits ($100), but they're willing to drop any charges against the vandals if they simply return the cow.
