A fibre glass full size replica of a black and white Fresian worth around £1,000 that was stolen from a Fenland garden has been found, police say.
The statue that was described as a ‘local icon’ was stolen from Ramsey Forty Foot in March.
It was suspected that someone had entered the rear garden of the house in Ramsey Road and took the cow.
However, police now say that the case is closed after they received a call earlier this week (July 9).
A spokesperson from Cambridgeshire Police said: “We received a call from the victim to say that the stolen cow had been found.

Details of the theft – released via social media by Huntingdonshire police at the time – prompted a backlash from some disgruntled residents.
