It took a small army to corral a runaway cow in Colorado early Sunday morning. 

Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office deputies in Centennial, about 20 miles south of Denver received a call from a homeowner about a cow wandering around their neighborhood. 

Deputies were unable to locate the cow initially, but continued to drive north of the neighborhood where it was first seen, according to public information officer Ginger Delgado. 

A crowd of people, including the cow’s owner, had gathered and parked their cars to trap the cow in a cul-de-sac. The group spent over an hour trying to help authorities capture the cow.

The cow was astutely avoiding the cars and people by weaving its way through open spaces as it plotted its escape, according to a 36 second video posted to Facebook.

Eventually, the cow’s owner was able to approach the cow in a trailer, but it took off towards a nearby playground. 

The group was able to keep the cow at the playground by making a human fence, walking the animal into the trailer. 

“The steaks were high and we didn’t want to butcher this slow-speed chase but this cow was moooooving! They finally got it confined to a small park and it was back in its trailer in no time. Holy cow! You all did an udderly good job. Now let’s milk this for all its worth…,” Arapahoe County Sheriff’s Office wrote on Facebook.
