The cow, which is thought to be a Highland, was spotted from the footpath between Bickham Bridge and Gara Bridge by Martin Pearse. 

He is currently looking for the owner, saying: "It could have travelled down river a long way as the river was very swollen this morning." 

The local knackerman, Andrew Goatman, has been informed.
