March 19, 2015

The theft of a cow named María del Milagro and her unusual recovery fromthe back seat of an unofficial taxicabturned her into a celebrity, as members ofthe dairy industry sought her image to represent them commercially, accordingto the daily Al Día.

María del Milagro was stolen from her farm in San Pedro de Coronado, east of the capital, in March.

The cow was placed in the taxi’s back seat. Two police officers from Santo Domingo de Heredia discovered the cow inside the vehicle and detained the suspected cattle thief, after which María del Milagro’s owners reclaimed the cow.

Upon return to the farm, María del Milagro appeared “sad and very distressed” by all the photos and visitors, the finca caretaker told the daily.
