A cow originally destined for the Carroll County 4-H & FFA Fair this week remained at large in the greater Westminster area as of Saturday morning, according to the Carroll County Sheriff's Office. "I take them out to the fair every year for the kids' rodeo and a few of them managed to get off the trailer," said Doug Dell, the owner of the animals. Initially, four cows escaped on Tuesday, but three were later found. The missing animal is a 500- to 600-pound heifer, according to Dell, and was intended to participate in the "calf scramble" at Wild West Night, a rodeo event at the 4-H & FFA Fair.

The Carroll County sheriff agreed yesterday to begin collecting cheek-swab DNA samples from convicted felons at the county jail - a move designed to help the Maryland State Police tackle a backlog of required samples that was the subject of a critical state audit. Although the Carroll Detention Center housed 17 people convicted of crimes yesterday - and the state police backlog is more than 9,000 - officials said yesterday's agreement could be the start of an effort by local jurisdictions to help the state police catch up. Carroll Sheriff Kenneth L. Tregoning will become president of the Maryland Sheriffs' Association next month, and he pledged to use his influence to get other sheriffs to help collect DNA from new convicts.
