SENECA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Puppies, kittens…and cows?

The Oconee County Animal Shelter is looking for a home for a special animal this Christmas season.

“About two weeks ago, the Highway Patrol investigated an accident on Highway 24 near Westminster in which a couple of vehicles hit a cow in the roadway,” according to Lt. Mark Lyles with the Oconee County Sheriff’s Office. “The cow died but its offspring was standing by its mother.”

Lyles said no one came forward to claim the 750-pound Angus calf, so the animal shelter will begin accepting applications for its adoption next week.

Applications will be taken from Dec. 7 to Dec. 9 at the animal shelter on Sandifer Boulevard in Seneca. Registration is only open to Oconee County residents.

A drawing will be held at the shelter at 10 a.m. Dec. 10. The winner will be notified by phone.

The adoption fee is $200. Animal control officers will conduct a home check before the cow is released.
