The Royal Canadian Mounted Police have appealed to youngsters in the town of Campbell River who are knocking on doors in the middle of the night while dressed as cows to stop.
The Campbell River RCMP said they are hoping to speak to one individual who was caught on camera at around 10pm on December 3.
Mounties in Campbell River, British Columbia, are on the lookout for the culprit who was dressed as a cow as he rang doorbells before running away in the Penfield neighbourhood.
Police have said that while the incident was relatively harmless, the escalation of late-night doorbell ringing in the community has crossed from innocent fun into criminal mischief.
"Many people may consider the game of nicky nine doors a harmless prank, and we are sure there are adults in the community who remember playing the game in good fun as youth," said Constable Maury Tyre of the Campbell River RCMP.
