·1-min read

An escaped cow has been saved from an uncertain fate after cowboys managed to lasso the animal and heave it to safety.

KOCO News 5 overhead camera caught the action live as emergency crews pursued the heffer as it enjoyed a spontaneous jaunt along a busy Oklahoma City highway.

The four-legged fugitive managed to evade capture once as officers tried – and failed – to trap it by a fence.

But cowboys continued the chase and managed to rope the fleeing beast, dragging it out of the path of oncoming traffic and bringing the cow's brief outing to an end.
