Not so merry moo

By Country News

Greater Shepparton City Council is disappointed with the theft of a Christmas Moooving Art cow from Victoria Park Lake in Shepparton.

Merry Moo, the yellow Christmas cow, was taken early on Monday, December 17, between 6.30am and 9am.

Greater Shepparton City Council economic development manager Anthony Nicolaci is encouraging anyone with information to come forward.

‘‘This is a disappointing act to occur so close to Christmas time,’’ Mr Nicolaci said.

‘‘Council works with the community to provide festive decorations to have our region looking its best for residents and visitors and this is an act of poor behaviour which we hope can be rectified.’’

Council has reported the theft to police and hopes residents can help safely return Merry Moo back to her herd.

■Anyone with information about the theft can phone Shepparton Police on 5820 5777.
