GREAT FALLS - One Great Falls man is number one thanks to number two.
Great Falls Central Catholic High School, Lady of Lourdes and Holy Spirit hosted their second annual cow pie bingo fundraiser Wednesday night.
People paid $20 to buy a square on the football field then they crossed their fingers, hoping the cow would do its business in their square.
It took less than 10 minutes for Tao the cow to make local resident David Ness the winner of $10,000.
"I just couldn't believe it, you know. I said, ‘You all are joking right?' They said, ‘no,'" Ness said.
The person who sold the winning ticket receives $1,000, but since David bought it from the school, he plans to give that chunk of change back.
As for the rest of it, he plans to save up and invest in his children's college education.
