A local cattle owner who says electrical shorts in the fencing around the pasture are to blame for the loose bovines, according to a story published by the Morning Call.
Christine Hess, of 1987 Waldheim Road, Lower Saucon Township, has since received another citation for failure to confine her animals, township police reported in a press release Monday.
Police said officers responded to the area of the pasture--which is near Flint Hill and Waldheim roads--at 9:08am Saturday, Aug. 4.
They say Hess has been warned repeatedly about the confinement of her animals in the past.
Officers most recently responded to the area of the pasture for a report of loose cows on July 16, July 17, July 22, July 23, July 30, July 31 and Aug. 1, according to the press release.
In a story published by the Morning Call Aug. 1, Hess told the newspaper the curious cows test the fencing and then "wiggle" through it or jump over it if they don't feel a shock.
She also said transient geese and deer may be the cause of the shorts, and that she will be driving the perimeter of the property to ensure that the fencing is functioning properly.
