Residents of Lennox Head awoke on Saturday morning to find a rogue black cow roaming their street.
The burghers of McLean Street in the Elevation estate woke to find the mooing bovine in their front gardens.
The area is surrounded by farmland and it was suspected the adventurous animal came from a nearby farm.
Local residents formed a group and lured it back to the farming property that backs onto Elevation.
One local said the sight delighted the kids of the surrounding streets.
