While the idiom of a bull in a china shop warns of the folly in allowing a hefty beast access to delicate crockery, a store owner in central Israel found out Tuesday that a cow in a hardware store can be no less costly.

The cow in question ran amok through a store in Emunim, a small agricultural community in central Israel, with the owner saying the unpaying visitor caused thousands of shekels’ worth of damage.

A video of the incident shared on social media showed the animal running down aisles, slipping as its hooves struggled to find a grip on the smooth floor.

As the animal continues to flounder about, a woman can be heard shouting in the background, “A cow has come into the store and it is spilling paint!”

Owner Dudu Goldstein told Channel 12 it was the first time something like that had ever happened to him.

“Birds and the like have come in, but no cows,” he said. He estimated the damage at NIS 3,000-4,000 ($800-$1100).

After knocking various items off shelves, to the alarm of those present, the cow eventually left without causing injury.
