Jessica A. Nelson of Mosinee, Wisconsin was waiting in the McDonald’s drive thru lane when she spotted something unmoosual.
Sitting in the backseat of an otherwise unsuspecting Buick (or shall we say, Moo-ick) wasn’t a child or a dog, as one might expect. Instead, a full on cow was sitting patiently in the seat, waiting in the fast food drive thru lane with its owner.
“THERE’S A WHOLE A** COW IN THE BACK OF THAT CAR,” Nelson wrote in text overlay on a clip of the cow-sighting — in all caps, as we probably would as well. “A WHOLE FREAKING COW,” she reiterated in the Facebook caption.
“Tell me you live in Wisconsin without telling me you live in Wisconsin,” Nelson added, joking about what it’s like to live in the Midwest (apparently). She later clarified that the M(oo)CDonalds in question was located in Marshfield, about three hours west of Milwaukee.
Nelson spoke to the Associated Press after the cow spotting, admitting she thought it had to have been a prank. “I thought it was fake at first. Who puts a cow in a Buick? Then its whole head moved,” she told AP.
“I just took the video of it because I was blown away there was a cow in the back of a Buick,” she continued. After filming, she quickly uploaded the a-moo-sing video to Facebook, where its since been shared nearly 8 thousand times.

As if the lone cow wasn’t strange enough, the driver of the Buick got in touch with Nelson after the video went viral. The owner confirmed that the cow was not only real — but there were two more in the backseat that weren’t visible in her video. Apparently, they had just purchased the bovine, who were still calves, at an auction, and stopped at the fast food joint on the way home.
We sincerely hope nobody told the newly purchased calves what kind of meat — or dairy, for that matter — is primarily served at the establishment at which they were spotted.
We wish the new family an utterly happy life together, bereft of any beef.
