Spotted at Wisconsin McDonald's: 'That's a whole ass cow in the back of that car!'

One commenter joked that the cow was simply taking a "Moober."
Marshfield, Wisconsin - September 2015

Taking a cow through a McDonald's drive-thru and ordering a burger seems cruel. It'd be like taking a pig to the Big Fat Bacon booth at the Minnesota State Fair. But hey, we're talking about Wisconsin here so no one should be surprised. 

Jessica Nelson was at the McDonald's drive-thru in Marshfield, Wisconsin, on Aug. 26 when she spotted the cow's head in the back of a Buick. 

“A WHOLE FREAKING COW!!! Tell me you live in Wisconsin without telling me you live in Wisconsin," she wrote in a Facebook post. The caption on her video read "That’s a whole ass cow in the back of that car!”

Nelson told the Associated Press that the cow's owner saw her viral Facebook post and said there were two other calves in the back seat. The family had just purchased the calves at an auction when they decided to get some food on their way home. 

Nelson's video has been viewed more than 242,000 times as of 8 a.m. Monday. 

For the record, McDonald's claims its burgers are 100% beef.
