On the Loose!
Maybe you saw this story earlier. A steer got loose in North Ft. Worth , running amuk all over town, even through a McDonald's drive-thru (visiting some relatives? Nah - not at McDonalds! there's no meat there!). The police chased it for more than 30 minutes before they finally cornered it and tranquilized it. I love these kind of stories. A few years ago when I was working near downtown Dallas, a cattle truck over turned, spilling more than 30 head of cattle loose into downtown. Many of those police officers had never had the opportunity to handle cattle, so the police and the cattle were both looking at each other with a "what am I supposed to do now?" sort-of expression. Good work by the officer in the picture - nice lasso!
