Apparently, cows in Boxford, Massachusetts like to party.  Police Lt. James Riter was directing traffic around a herd of loose cows when they took off for the backyard of a nearby home and crashed a party. “I could hear screaming coming from the back of the house.  When I ran around back, a group of young adults were outside enjoying the nice weather and having a few beers,” Riter said.  “The cows chased them away from the table they were sitting at and started drinking their beers.  They knocked the cans over with their noses and started drinking beer right off the table.”  Riter said that of the available beers, the cows seemed to prefer the Bud Light to the Miller Lite.  “When they ran out of beers on the table, one of them started to forage in the recycling to see if he could find any last drops in there,” Riter said.  A dispatcher was able to contact the owner of the animals, who was able to round up the herd with the help of some friends.  No word on whether the cows had hangovers from all their partying.
