Hundreds of cows in the Volgograd region have mysteriously disappeared since early October, Interfax reported Monday, citing regional police.
A local farm owner told police that his cows had begun to vanish in early October, the report said. By mid-November, when the number of missing cows hit 350, he decided to appeal to police, he said.
The estimated worth of the 350 cows is 12 million rubles ($266,000). Police are currently conducting an investigation to determine the reason for the disappearance, after which criminal charges may be filed, Interfax reported.
