SACRAMENTO, Ca – California law enforcement officers spent hours chasing a runaway cow that bolted onto a major freeway and into a suburban shopping area Wednesday morning reported FOX40 News.

California Highway Patrol first spotted the cow on Highway 99 around 4:00 a.m. and it quickly led them into an Elk Grove field.  A dozen Elk Grove Police officers joined the chase , but the cow kept going managing to run across the street into a shopping area and back into another field.

“We didn’t want the cow to walk into the flow of traffic and create a hazard for people on the road,” said Elk Grove Police.

Four hours after the chase began it ended as the cow was captured and transported back to its owner’s farm.
