Cow in Brainerd garage stirs complaint

There’s a cow in a garage somewhere in Brainerd.

It might sound like the start of a bad joke, but it’s true. Staff at Brainerd City Hall received a complaint Thursday that a resident was keeping a cow in a garage.

Because it’s an open investigation, City Administrator Patrick Wussow wouldn’t say exactly where the garage is or who owns it, but did say it’s in a residential-zoned district.

Wussow confirmed: cows are not allowed in residential-zoned districts.
