Holy cow! This is udderly ridiculous!
A cow was on the loose in Jamaica, Queens Tuesday and cops were doing their darndest to try and lasso it! (Note: They weren’t really using a lasso, to our knowledge. Although they should’ve. That’s what a rancher would do.)
Video shows it happily trotting about enjoying the scenery of suburbia with cop cars following it at a slow pace, presumably so as not to startle it.
Then a man dressed in a brown jacket starts running after it, prompting the cow to break into a gallop!
The clip concludes with the cow getting trapped between a car and a house, and then lying down in the grass to chill after such an adventure. Or, more accurately, being tranquilized so cops could finally get it to stop moo-ving.
Oh, the bovinity!
P.S. Apparently it escaped from a nearby slaughterhouse and will be returned there! *sob*

Of course Trump will denounce the runaway cow in Queens, it’s brown.

The Cops are chasing a cow in Queens. If it’s a black cow they’ll probably shoot him, if it’s a white one they’ll buy him some burger king..

How common is it for a cow to be out walking around in Queens?
Probably about medium rare.

After today’s events in Queens, I wanted to discuss cattle terminology—cow versus bull—but I’ve decided to steer clear of it.

What is my life. I just spent close to 10 minutes coming up with cow puns with @jongraywb thanks to the Queens issue. Lordie calf mercy.

That cow in Queens is running for its life. It saw what Mayor de Blasio did to the groundhog.
