A cow that was part of a live nativity scene in Philadelphia broke loose twice Thursday morning and was corralled on I-95 and in a parking garage. 

Stormy the cow was in an enclosure at the Old First Reformed United Church of Christ when she escaped the first time around 2 a.m., NBC 10 reported. She is from a farm in Philadelphia’s Roxborough neighborhood and has worked with kids from the local 4-H club.

Police corralled Stormy on I-95 and returned her to the enclosure, which looked like it had been tampered with, NBC 10 reported.

Stormy then escaped again around 6:30 a.m. and ended up in a nearby parking garage that was attached to a Wyndham hotel. 

After the second escape, Stormy was returned to the farm and a smaller cow, Ginger, took her place, according to 6ABC.

The live nativity has been featured at the church since 1973, drawing audiences who can even feed the animals (under supervision) if they want to, NBC 10 reported. 

The church’s pastor, Reverend Caine, said some had expressed concern recently for the animals being out in the cold. He said a farmer cares for the animals and a veterinary tech also works with them as needed, 6ABC reported. 

Police are investigating how Stormy got out of the enclosure.

Twitter users, including the police, had fun commenting on escaped nativity scene cow.
