NO BULL: Cops And Cowboys Bring In Runaway Steer

This is the bizarre moment two cowboys round up a runaway bull along a busy road after a three-day chase with police in New Hampshire.

The scenes were filmed not in the Wild West, but in the sedate eastern town Pelham, in Hillsborough County.

According to police, the stubborn bull was finally brought into custody after three days on the run.

Pelham Police Department (PPD) said the bull’s owner had to call in the “real cowboys” to catch the rogue animal with the help of local officers.

In the footage, two cowboys are seen racing after the young bull through a car park with their lassos ready to throw.

But the crafty bull swerves behind a parked car and the cowboys lose their target.

Police said the bull was finally captured by the cowboy-cop team and was returned to the farm safe and sound.
