Cows stolen from Brad Pitt movie set
Glasgow - Two cows have been stolen from the set of Brad Pitt's latest film World War Z
The pair of fake fibreglass cows were taken by thieves from a field at the Grangemouth oil refinery in Falkirk, Scotland, where scenes for the zombie movie are being shot.
The crooks managed to make off with the false animals despite a security guard being on duty at the time.
One resident, who lives near the set site, told the Daily Mirror
newspaper: "These cows don't really look much like real animals, so we have been wondering how they might be used. They look like concrete but they're made out of fibreglass and are not as heavy as they look."
The cows were part of a set being used to recreate a war-ravaged Philadelphia. Scottish mansion
Brad is also shooting a number of sequences for the film in Glasgow and he and his partner Angelina Jolie and their six children - Maddox, 10, Pax, seven, Shiloh, five, Zahara, six, and three-year-old twins Vivienne and Knox - will be staying in a 16th century mansion while they are in Scotland.
The lavish property is located in the Ayrshire hills and boasts a 10-acre garden where horses and pheasants roam freely and a lake where the family can go trout fishing.
In World War Z
- which is based on the book by Max Brooks - Brad plays a UN agent who travels the world interviewing survivors of a global zombie attack which occurred 10 years earlier.
The 47-year-old Hollywood heartthrob is also producing the project.
