CLINTON, Maine (AP) - Police say they’ve interviewed at least one person of interest after hundreds of cows were let out of their pens at a Maine farm last month.

Police say about 150 cows were released at Misty Meadow Farm in Clinton on the night of Nov. 29 or early Nov. 30. Farm workers rounded up the cows and got them back into their pens.

Hours later, police say roughly 500 cows were released and discovered by the next shift of workers. One cow fell into a drainage hole, broke its neck and died.

Police say other acts of vandalism were also done at a nearby farm.

Police Chief Stanley Bell tells the Morning Sentinel (http://bit.ly/2hOIkbQ ) they believe the culprits are youths or late teenagers. An investigation remains ongoing.
