STAFFORD, Va. - A man dressed in a cow suit is being charged with shoplifting 26 gallons of milk from a Wal-Mart.

Stafford County Sheriff's spokesman Bill Kennedy says the 18-year-old man crawled on all fours into the Garrisonville store Tuesday night.

"Moments later, the cow walked back outside, this time walking upright, pushing a car full of 26 gallons of milk," says Kennedy.

Kennedy says the man was eventually caught, but only after he was seen by witnesses "skipping down the street."

"While it may have been a prank, it stopped being funny when he decided to take about $100 worth of milk from the store without paying."
