Moo@NU II to graze inside Norris year after original theft

The cow comes home at 4 p.m. today when Moo@NU is resurrected in front of Norris University Center.

Norris will serve up the fiberglass cow, dubbed Moo@NU II, along with milk and cookies at a ceremony inside its main entrance.

The cow will be a near replica of the original Moo, as Evanston painter Harold Burns painted the same “bull’s eye” design on both. The first Moo stood outside Norris only a few weeks before it was stolen from its grazing grounds in front of Norris’ entrance. The cow was attached to a 200-pound base, and the cattle rustlers had to saw its legs off to steal it.

To deter more prospective cow-tippers, the new Moo will be kept inside Norris.

It will be out in the lobby area that students can hop on its back for a photo opportunity.

The two cow-nappers from last spring had to cover the new Moo@NU II costs, including artist fees and flying the Fiberglass structure from Switzerland to Chicago.

The students were caught in June when Moo’s head and udder were found in their fraternity house, Phi Gamma Delta.
