Cool Stealing cow in Indica???

Here is a funniest thing I have ever heard in my life.

Marathi news item as appeared on esakal.com .

First few lines of original Story translated in english, sorry for poor translation.

Aurangabad - Cops arrested thieves who stole a cow and were taking it away in their Indica.

After cops stopped the the car, three thieves managed to get away whereas one thief was arrested by them. One theif, indica and the cow in their possession....

Here is the original story

URL - eSakal

Someone who is good with marathi, please translate it for the amusement of other BHPians.

Really amusing piece of news. Beats me as to how could the thieves get the cow inside the car and how could the cops get it out.

Is it the classic case of milking the (cash) cow?

As a villager who grew up around farms, I can help with this. Seen it done when a cow had to be hoisted on a 30 inch platform.

1) You bring the cow to the open hatch with the head almost going into the car.
2) Then you gently lift one of the front legs, fold it and place it inside. Don't worry, cows will let you do it, especially if they are equipped with nose rope. Experience with cow handling will definitely help.
3) Then do the same with the other front leg, while shifting the weight on the folded front leg.
4) Now push the whole body forward from behind. This may be little difficult depending on the size of the cow. Don't push it all the way, you need to leave enough clearance for bending the rear legs.
5) Once most of the body is inside, lift both rear legs simultaneously and place it inside. This is the heaviest lift of all.

Voila!

Wonderful & step by step instructions to to put a cow in side an Indica

i rememebred once my daughter asked me how to put an elephant inside the refregirator. She has a series of questions on such topics which makes elders feel they know nothing

Any process to get the cow out of the Indica ?

Simple, follow the same process in the reverse. BTW, the rear seats have to folded before attempting to put the cow into the Indica.

The Arrive Alive website received an email with these images! There are no words to add to this story, without the Police photos to prove it…. few would believe this is possible!
This Toyota Tazz was stolen in Butterworth/Transkei. It was later involved in an accident.
Not 1…Not 2…but 3 cows were found inside (also stolen!) They were tied up and squashed in!!
When the cows were removed from the vehicle it became apparent that the rear seat and front passenger seat were been removed to fit the cattle in!!!
The cows were removed and are still doing well!! [See photo below]

Guess the thieves were trying to make hay while the sun shines, that would have attracted the cows
