Cow on the Loose in Prospect Park, Police Say

Cow on the Loose in Prospect Park, Police Say

The insane scene took place Tuesday beginning at around 11 a.m. local time, and it took nearly two hours to capture it.

Finally, at around 1:15 p.m., the NYPD managed to corral the cow and herd it into a Mounted Unit horse transporter.

A live ABC 7 Chopper feed showed the cow cornered by authorities on a field in the park. Investigators said they believe the cow ran away from a slaughterhouse on Fourth Ave. and 16th Sunset Park and ran two miles to the park.

Officers used soccer goals to fence the animal in on a baseball diamond, but the cow barreled through one of the nets, knocking down a police officer.

The New York Daily News reported that the cow escaped from a nearby slaughterhouse and was running wild in Prospect Park for a number of hours. There's no word yet how the bull got loose, or what will happen to it now.

It's not clear where the animal came from. The animal drew a crowd of curious onlookers and quickly stirred up a social media frenzy for the "Prospect Park Cow".
