Can you separate them?

The problem is - if she gets the cow to stand (or any other cow), she will drain the colostrum and she will never produce it again for the newborn. Or, if you have a cow that will allow her to suck any time, the calf will starve.
It may have been something random - maybe because the new momma smelled different. If I saw her do it again, she would grow wheels.

Old timey solution is putting a bull ring or plastic flap into the nose of the sucker.

Calve out the milk stealer and I'd suggest selling her in 6-7 months with her calf by her side.

Either sell her or buy her some jewelery. I've found both work
