SENECA, S.C. — A cow that lost its mother in a car accident is looking for a home in Oconee County.

Media outlets report that the Oconee County Animal Shelter will begin accepting applications next week for the adoption of the calf.

Oconee County Sheriff’s Office Lt. Mark Lyles says the Highway Patrol responded to an accident on S.C. 24 in which a couple of vehicles hit a cow in the road last month. The cow died, but its calf survived. Animal control took the calf to the shelter, and Lyles says no one has come forward to claim it.

Lyles says the calf is a 750-pound Angus.

Applications will be taken from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Wednesday at the animal shelter. For further information, contact the shelter at 864-888-0221 or go to its website.
