NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Wednesday night was a series of surprises for animal control officer Rick George in Milford, Connecticut.
First, he finally caught wtih a cow, affectionately named Waldo, that's evaded him since July.
Second, he found out Waldo is actually a Wanda.
It ends a six month cow-hunt for Wanda, who veterinarians believe has been hanging out with a herd of deer.
They believe the deer would alert her to humans being present every time they tried to capture her.
"Fascinating and frustrating," is how veterinarian Kimberly McClure Brinton describes the experience of trying to capture Wanda.
Wanda is now at an Oxford, Connecticut farm where she will live out her days unless her owner is identified.
