With a runaway cow loose on a Michigan highway, help came in the form of a cowboy to the rescue. He lassoed the animal and saved the day!

Animals provide humans with several necessary items. Dogs, cats and other similar beings make excellent, loyal and loving companions. The wool from sheep helps in the creation of pieces of clothing. Cows, pigs, deer and others provide humans with food.

However, as anyone knows, animals, even farm animals, can also provide humans with plenty of headaches. Members of law enforcement and animal wranglers in the Detroit area experienced this firsthand when a cow made a mad dash for freedom.

Cowboy To The Rescue

A video posted to YouTube shows a loose cow sprinting alongside, onto and across the busy Michigan highway as a cowboy on horseback follows right behind.

The situation first began when the cow exited its enclosure on the farm. The video mentions that law enforcement was alerted and requested to assist with possible traffic control when it was thought to be headed for the highway.

At some point during its excursion, the cow became stuck in a gravel pit. The cow was freed from its predicament and thought it would try for freedom once again.

It was during the animal's second try at freedom when it made it onto the roadway, encountering traffic. In the video, several cars in the far-left lane can be seen zooming on by the galloping bovine.

But thanks to the cowboy on horseback, following closely behind the freedom-seeking beast, the cow loose on the Michigan highway was captured. The cowboy to the rescue, as the video mentions, used rope to lasso and stop the animal.

Talk about fast food! Thank God the animal was captured before anyone was injured.

It's unclear what, if any, charges the cow may face. The runaway cow was not immediately available for comment.
