Sheldon - A Vermont couple has chased off a moose that appeared to be bonding with their two cows on a Sheldon farm because they didn't want it to get injured, stuck in their barn or damage their fences.

Sharyn Abbott and her husband Tim returned to their home recently and found a female moose in the pasture with their two Belted Galloway cows, Precious and Primrose.

The Abbotts dubbed the moose Molly" and said she looked healthy.

"I think she was looking for companionship," Tim Abbott said.

In the late 1980s, a moose nicknamed Bullwinkle became a worldwide celebrity when it wandered into a Shrewsbury, Vermont, field, befriended a cow named Jessica and stayed for three months.

The Abbotts didn't want the moose to stay that long so they chased it off.
