The Sonoma County Sheriff's Office made an unconventional traffic stop in Guerneville on Monday. A deputy saw two cows strolling down Church Street, and it appeared they were headed to a bar.

The cows, named Clover and Smokestack, live on Armstrong Woods Road, said Guerneville resident Jojo Wood, who helped the deputy take the cows home.

"When asked, they said they were heading to their favorite local watering hole for a drink (we’ll let you guess which one)," the sheriff's office said in a Facebook post. "They were determined to all be under 21 and were sent back to their pasture with a scolding from the rancher."
