After months of intricate planning, five inmates at one of many Barnes County bovine penitentiaries dashed to temporary freedom Thursday morning.
Showing no fear of re-incarceration, the fugitives brazenly halted to eat their first meal as free cattle moments after their escape, barely bothered by the approach of oncoming traffic.
Reports from the scene suggest that an unnamed commuter halted the escape with a loud and sustained blare of a carhorn, startling the escapees back toward the prison walls.
There is no word how the situation ended, or if news of this prison break will inspire other inmates around the area to attempt an escape of their own.
