A husband and wife in Iowa were shocked to see a cow removing letters from their mailbox and eating them, according to a video that was uploaded to the Internet.

Erin Hudson of Afton said that she and her husband could not figure out why the cow was obsessed with their mailbox and letters.

On Sunday, Hudson’s daughter looked out the window of their home and noticed the black cow standing next to the mailbox.

The girl called her mother and father and started recording the incident.

The cow then pulled out some letters of the mailbox and started chewing on them.

The girl’s father ran outside in an attempt to rescue the mail.

The girl can be heard saying that she hopes the cow did not eat anything important as her father ran toward the animal.

When Hudson’s husband got close enough to the cow, it ran away along with the envelopes.

The cow belongs to their neighbor.

The cow came back later.

It broke the mailbox and threw it into a ditch.
