The owner of a cow that pulled off a great escape during a trip to a Southland abattoir has been found thanks to a humble classified ad.

Stock agent Terry Cairns put an ad in the Southland Times seeking sightings of a 'solid black Heifer' described as being 'mildly agitated'.

He told Simon and Phil she was in a secure pen in a sale yard when she bolted.

Terry says the good news is someone found her, and he was on his way to confirm it's her.
