Hoofprints lead police straight to farm thief

Some things are just too big to nick, as an unemployed man found when he made off with a cow a farmer had left to graze in Kampong Speu province.

The hapless thief hadn’t taken into account the enormous weight of his bovine booty, which left footprints police could follow as they chased the pair.

The 23-year-old confessed to trying to sell the beast, saying he had no cash. The cow was reunited with its owner and the thief sent to court.
