Where’s the beef? Cows on loose


OKLAHOMA CITY — A few brave bovines led Oklahoma City police on a wild chase Thursday morning. 

Several cows broke out of a fenced area near Wilshire and the Kilpatrick Turnpike around 8 a.m. 

Oklahoma City Police responded, using their cruisers to herd the reluctant ruminants back into place.

But one stubborn steer make a break for it, running westbound down Wilshire.

Police had to block both lanes of Wilshire just west of the turnpike to ensure the cow wouldn’t hurt anybody, causing traffic to back up in both directions.

By 9 a.m. the cattle owner arrived and captured the last of the absconding animals.

No humans or cows were hurt during the incident.

The owner of the cows was issued a citation for allowing his animals to escape.
