Queens, New York bovine eludes cops

Published:

#ICYMI a bovine on the loose in Queens, New York this afternoon made quite the buzz on social. Good Morning America even live streamed the coverage of the 45-minute chase before officers were able to corral the animal in a backyard.

According to NBC News, the animal died at some point before 2:30 p.m., nearly three hours after it escaped a Beaver Road slaughterhouse. Fox News reported that police officials used a tranquilizer to calm him and also injected the animal with a syringe of xylazine, a drug used for sedation. A cause of death for the animal wasn’t immediately clear, but a spokeswoman for Animal Care Centers of NYC said it died during transport.

This wasn’t the first time the borough has had to chase cattle down that have escaped the slaughterhouse.
