Animals roaming free in central and upstate New York is nothing new. The most famous was Norm, the cow that grabbed national attention in Utica. It even had it's own song.

Then there was the pig in Rome, the goat in Utica,the horses in Sherrill and the buffalo in Sharon.

And who could forget the kangaroo in the Finger Lakes.

The picture of the bull is a stock image and not the actual bull that's on the loose in Vernon.
