At 7:30 a.m. Sunday, Aug. 2, the Stearns County Sheriff’s Office responded to a hazard call near the Community Country Church in Holdingford. A passerby saw three cattle on the lawn of the church and believed they could become a hazard to traffic on Co. Rd. 17. The deputy located the cattle and was able to move the cattle to a nearby farm with the help of local residents. Residents had checked around the area and were unable immediately to determine where the cattle came from. The owner of the farm was able to make accommodations for the cattle and advised he would keep them safe for the time being. On Monday, the owner of the cattle came forward to claim the animals and return them to his farm, a mile and a half away. The cattle are described as three bulls being a mixture of tan, brown, and white in color with short horns.
