Some rowdy young party crashers are making headlines today for stealing all of the beer at a backyard bash.

Police in Boxford, Mass. say that a group of young adults were enjoying an outdoor college reunion party Sunday evening when six cows showed up and hurtled toward their beverages.

"They went right for the beer and then when one was done, they'd knock another one over and take care of that beer," Lt. James Riter of the Boxford Police Department told a local newspaper. "I saw one cow drinking the beer on its way down as it spilled off the table... Some of the cows were also picking through the empties in the recycling bin... They just went in and helped themselves."

According to Wicked Local, the bovine beer-lovers frightened human party-goers indoors. One person from the party, as well as a neighbour called 911.

Riter said he witnessed 10-13  women jumping on the rear deck of the house to avoid contact with the cows when he arrived. "The young women were absolutely in shock," he told a reporter.

The cows' owner eventually showed up to help herd them back to his field - but not before police could snap a few photos.

Lucky for the 1-year-old cows, no underage drinking charges were laid.
