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.
