Cornellia the Cow Returns to C.U.

Print More

Last night at around 12:30 a.m., a small group of people returned Cornellia, the Dairy Store’s fiberglass cow, to the pitcher’s mound at Hoy Field. The group drove a black pickup truck and covered the cow in blue tarp. Largely undamaged, Cornellia wore a wreathe of fake red roses around its neck and a Cornell baseball shirt, while a Rawlings baseball lay at its feet. The cow had been missing since late August and is valued at around $1,500. Cornellia was also stolen — and returned — in 2003.
But the fate of Cornellia’s calf, also missing, remains a mystery.
One person involved with the incident vowed that the calf would return—but not until spring.
