KAUKAUNA, Wis. (WLUK) -- Only in Wisconsin.

A FOX 11 viewer from the Fox Valley shared an unusual video captured by her doorbell camera. Mary Van Rossum of Kaukauna says a calf wandered onto her front porch Saturday night.

The spotted Holstein calf can be seen making its way up a step and exploring the porch, even letting out a trademark "moo" at one point in the video.

In an email to FOX 11, Van Rossum, who lives on a dairy farm, says she heard the calf make noise and got up to check it out. She found the calf lying on the porch and at first, almost let the calf in the house, she tells us.

Van Rossum's husband then got the calf safely back to its mother.

"I have shared the video with friends and family because I thought it was a hoot," she said. "It's rare, but sometimes animals sneak out of the barn, but they have never wandered over to the front porch. She is a healthy calf and is doing very well."
