Moo Moo Subaru: Why some enthusiasts are putting cow figurines on cars

Christin Vogt had just biked from Bainbridge to Columbia and back to the trail parking lot when she noticed her friend suspiciously eyeing her Subaru. “Then I saw it and thought, ‘What the heck is going on here?’ ” Vogt says. “There was this little rubbery plastic cow with a card sitting on my windshield and I was likem ‘OK, I don’t know what that’s all about.’ ”

The card contained a QR code, which Vogt was hesitant to scan until she reasoned “if this was a scam, they probably wouldn’t leave me a rubber cow.” She held her breath. The code took her to Moo Moo Subaru, a Facebook page dedicated to mooing — a term used by Subaru owners currently leaving bovines on each other’s rides.

Vogt posted on the page to thank whomever had mooed. She quickly got a reply.
