Wisconsin drivers waiting in the drive-thru lane of a McDonald’s in Marshfield on Thursday had an unexpected sight: a cow waiting in line for hamburgers. In the video uploaded to social media, the cow is shown in the back seat of the car looking out the vehicle’s closed window.
A “whole cow” is spotted in a car waiting in line at a Wisconsin McDonald’s
According to the Associated Press, Jessica Nelson, of Mosinee, was among the group of lucky drivers who spotted the bovine under the golden arches.
The cow in question was not walking near the restaurant, but was spotted sitting in the back seat of a Buick waiting in the drive-through lane.
“At first I thought it was fake: who puts a cow in a Buick?” said Nelson to the media outlet. Then his whole head shook.”
Faced with the bizarre spectacle, Nelson pulled out his phone and began filming the passenger cow. He then uploaded the footage to Facebook with the caption: ¡¡¡¡”A WHOLE DAMN COW !!!! Tell me it lives in Wisconsin without telling me it lives in Wisconsin.”
Nelson’s video shows the cow in the back seat of the car looking out the vehicle’s closed window. The cow appears calm in the clip and does not move, aside from the occasional blink and tilt of the head. The footage of the farm animal at the fast food restaurant has received more than 256,000 views.
The success of the video on Facebook prompted Nelson to get more information about the animal. After seeing Nelson’s clip online, the cow’s owner approached Nelson and told him the cow is one of three calves they recently purchased at auction, according to AP.
The owner stopped at McDonald’s after the auction on his way home with the three calves, but only one of the animals can be seen in the clip, as the other calves were lying in the back seat.
