Video: Michigan State Police Help Wrangle Up A Runaway Cow
Michigan State Police are used to pulling over speeders and bad drivers on Michigan highways.
But on Sunday they found themselves not behind a driver breaking the law, but instead a runaway cow that showed no signs of stopping.
Michigan State Police Help Wrangle Up A Runaway Cow
Michigan State Police helped capture a runaway cow that had escaped onto I-75 near Holly, Michigan on Sunday afternoon.
The cow was stuck in a gravel pit on Belford Road, and a team of wranglers was trying to rescue it. Police were called to the area just in case the cow escaped and ran towards the highway.
When the wranglers tried to capture the cow with horses and four-wheelers, the cow evaded them and entered the northbound lanes of I-75.
Troopers stopped traffic in both directions while the wranglers gave chase, eventually capturing the cow and leading it to the median.
Michigan State Police shared dashcam footage of the moment when a man on horseback lassoed the escaped cow on I-75.
The video shows a team of wranglers trying to capture the cow as it runs across the northbound lanes of I-75.
Eventually, after much effort, the cow was captured and removed from the freeway.
The running away cow was not charged and is back in the pasture with a story to tell all the other livestock
