LIVE VIDEO: Helicopter Tracks Loose Cow In Brooklyn

PIX 11 reports:

A cow is on the loose in Brooklyn Tuesday, running around ballfields in Prospect Park. Responding crews are on the scene trying to wrangle the animal, which is tagged. It’s unclear where the cow escaped from. In February, a bull roamed the streets of Queens for about two hours before he was finally captured and died soon after.

The cow (a bull, actually) is being tracked by helicopter and Twitter is having a ball.

  • Max_1

    How now brown cow…?

  • Tatonka

    It’s not a cow. It appears to be a steer. As a Texan, I’d steak my reputation on it.

    • Silver Badger

      I believe you’re right. We really need a full frontal to be sure, but Joe doesn’t allow those often.

    • Gustav2

      As an Ohioan, I agree. Not knowing the difference could have caused problems on my uncle’s dairy operation.

      • Also, attempting to milk a steer will always result in Having A Bad Day.

        • Karl Dubhe

          Not for those who get to watch the show though. πŸ™‚

          They laugh like baboons!

          • Xiao Ai: The Social Gadfly

            And probably not for the steer, either.

  • liondon#iamnotatraitor

    Nice break from the daily shit show.

  • Tomcat

    Chase it to death like you did the bull recently.

  • bkmn

    How did Sarah Huckabee Sanders wind up in Brooklyn? She must have borrowed Spicey’s podium.

    • greenmanTN

      I was about to say, β€œAnd they can’t get SHS to the podium on time?!”

      • The_Wretched

        Did she ever show up for the press briefing yesterday?

        • TuuxKabin

          How could she? She was on her way to Brooklyn.

          • The_Wretched

            I shouldn’t have laughed.

        • greenmanTN

          I don’t think so, but I’d have to actually watch those train wrecks to know for sure.

    Wow, you city folk are Clueless, aren’t you? How sad…even the cow knows it.

    • GayOldLady

      This isn’t about being clueless, this is about a bull, albeit a small bull, on the loose in Brooklyn. What would you do? You know these guys can be a bit dangerous if they’re cornered, and you can’t let it run free. Any suggestions short of using something to put him to sleep?

      • Just send any farmer with experience handling steers + a steer trailer.

        • GayOldLady

          I could send my neighbor, but experienced cattle handler in Brooklyn, not an easy find.

      • Tomcat

        Don’t run it to death like they did the last bull.

    • Friday

      There’s only so many people you could *expect* to be familiar with what to do with loose cattle in Brooklyn. πŸ™‚ (People from such professions often are pretty clueless about city things, too.)

      Is that like cow tipping?

      • Tomcat

        May have meant Kow-tow.

    • While it’s entirely possible to tow a cow, doing so would inevitably result in a nightmarish mess after the first quarter mile or so…

      • Karl Dubhe

        Not if it was one of those trucks that lift the entire car onto their bed. πŸ™‚

        Of course, I can’t quite figure out how you’d do that with a cow.

        • Gustav2

          First you have to put the transmission in ‘neutral’

        • Phillip in L.A.

          During the war, a boy is bent over a washtub scrubbing clothes, and a passing soldier has intercourse with him from behind. He continues with his washing. Another soldier follows, then several more. Finally an old mule (or bear) ambles over and has intercourse with him in the same way. Without turning around the boy says, ‘Will that last gentleman please leave his name and address?’ [In a variant, the boy says languishingly, ‘If you were a real gentleman, you’d take off that fur-coat.’]

    • greenmanTN

      Cow towing? What does getting Sarah Huckabee Sanders to the press room on time have to do with anything? https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/e98def753c292ff11c7640be5447ef2c0c68bc29c392b9edc27bb6525785a88d.jpg

        That’s how I feel about Sarah MooMoo Huckabee after every one of her press conferences. Incidentally, Trump steaks are notoriously tough, yet fatty. What that cop is doing is what is necessary for everyone on the Trump team….and it’s not called “beating;” it’s called “tenderizing.”

      [1.] “An old hen is walking down the road when she is hit from behind by a jeep. She gets up, shakes her feathers, and says coyly, ‘Do you have to be so rough?'”

      [2.] “An actor is told that he can have the part in the play if he loses 40 pounds before the next night. He goes to a deluxe health salon, and is told this can easily be done by means of either a $500 treatment taking 24 hours, or a $1,000 treatment taking 12 hours. He picks the $500 treatment and is ushered into a large room in which he finds a naked girl wearing a sign reading: ‘YOU CATCH ME, YOU FUCK ME.’ He begins thinking, if this is the $500 treatment, what must the $1,000 treatment be? And rushes back to the office and asks to change to the more expensive treatment. This time he is ushered into a small room and the door is locked behind him. A door opens at the other side of the room and a gorilla with an enormous erection enters wearing a sign: ‘I CATCH YOU, I FUCK YOU.'”

  • In my part of the country, word someone’s cow, bull or steer had gotten loose would just be known as “Tuesday.” Or whatever day of the week it happens to be.

    Happens all the time. And said bovine nearly always finds its own way home.

    • Tomcat

      Unless it gets in the way of an automobile.
      Then both lose, because all of a sudden no one owns it.

    • Karl Dubhe

      I’ve a feeling this one’s heading for a different ‘home’.

    • GayOldLady

      That sounds like where I live too. Between the cattle finding holes in the fences and the deer roaming the fields there’s rarely a day when there isn’t something in the street or challenging you as you drive down the street.

            I hear the baby Sirloins are difficult to control.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        It doesn’t looked finished, or fat enough for slaughter to me.
        Then again it looks to be brahama, mostly a southern breed.

        • True. Way too old for veal, way too young to be a regular beef steer. By my guess, needs at least another year before it’s ready.

            Ever had a tequini? 3 parts white tequila, and a smidge of green chartreuse shaken with ice and strained into a freezing iced-up martini glass. Drink it fast.

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Wow–bet that packs a punch! Never had tequila with Chartreuse; I think ‘drink it fast’ is excellent advice! πŸ™‚

            btw, You don’t happen to have any absinthe recipes, do you, Lars Littlefield? (The real stuff, from wormwood.) It’s one of the few intoxicants I have never ingested.

            I just pour two shots over a sugar cube in a spoon balanced over a small glass, light it on fire and slug it down.

            Have you seen “La FΓ©e Verte”? (“The Green Fairy”)

          • Lars Littlefield

            No, but more than two servings of Absinthe makes me depressed. Two Absinthe cocktails are just enough.

          • Lars Littlefield

            That, I think, is a new/modern brand. I’ve never seen it before. There used to be a bar in Barcelona called, amusingly, TheAbsinthe Bar. They served Old stock found in storage from the turn of the 19th/20th Centuries as well as revived brands since it became legal again in the EU. I don’t recall tha brand.`

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Didn’t know it had become legal again in the EU!

            I was using La FΓ©e Verte more generally, as a metaphor, for the psychoactive properties. Sorry if I wasn’t clear enough….

            But it’s easy to understand why more than two might make one depressed! ;=/

    You city slickers need to learn the difference between a Cow, Bull or a Steer (castrated bull).

    πŸ˜‰

    • Tomcat

      Why, they don’t plan on dating it, just catching and transporting it home.

      • April

        Maybe so but Bulls tend to be more aggressive (testosterone does that). Plus what’s the issue with being accurate on what you speak of.

        • Tomcat

          Cows also attack if they feel threatened. Or in trumps case grabbed by the foofoo.

  • bambinoitaliano

    Maybe he will surrender if everyone stop calling him a cow.

      I’d be upset too.

    Cow: A cow is a female animal that has had at least one calf.

    • Ragnar Lothbrok

      There is also heifer : young female
      First calf heifer : Self explanatory
      But yeah, after one calf they earn full cow status.

    • Tomcat

      So is a whale a cow once it has a calf?

      • and glaciers too! they calve all the time!

    • Tomcat

      Try replacing word animal with bovine.

  • Pip

    Just have someone play an instrument. Cows run towards instruments like it’s the pied piper. It’s actually kind of a amazing to watch. My neighbor used to play his guitar and they’d come running from the lower pasture to hear him.

    • Adam King

      The Dothraki are attacking!

    • This is true. Cattle do seem to like certain kinds of music.

      It’s quite common to hear classical music when walking into any cattle farmer’s barn. Calms ’em down.

      • Ragnar Lothbrok

        We also had the radio blaring for the livestock 24/ 7. Makes a big difference. Horse barn too.

      • Lars Littlefield

        My paternal grandfather kept an old record player in his milking barn and would play Glenn Miller records. The cows definitely enjoyed the experience.

        • BearEyes

          Glenn Miller – what’s not to like

          • Phillip in L.A.

            Being milked–what’s not to like! πŸ˜‰

          • BearEyes

            ah, milking…..

          • Lars Littlefield

            I prefer Miller over Benny Goodman, but I’m more of an Artie Shaw and Tommy/Jimmy Dorsey fan. And, of course, Cab Calloway and Duke Ellington.

      • Pip

        My uncle kept an old beat up upright piano in the barn. When the bulls would get a bit surly he’d have my cousin go out and play classical music. They would calm down and come over to the windows to watch her play. It seemed to put them into a type of torpor.

    • Treant

      The cows couldn’t be quiet during the music. So you could say the constant cowmentary was distracting.

      • Pip

        Punny!

      • Adam King

        They’re singing along to the moosic.

        • Treant

          I have a beef with that.

          • Adam King

            So I herd.

    • TuuxKabin

      That’s great. A reason cattle drives have the cowboys singing and playing instruments along the drive. Keeps ’em calm and collected. What’s that tune? Something Royal?

    “An old bull and a young bull are standing on a hillside looking down at a herd of young heifers. ‘Look at that pretty little red heifer,’ says the younger bull. ‘Let’s run down and fuck her!’ ‘No,’ says the old bull, ‘let’s walk down and fuck ’em all.'”

    That doesn’t just chew cud
    And find I’m king of the hill
    Top of the heap

    These little town moos
    Are melting away
    I’ll make a brand new start of it
