UPPER DARBY, Pa. (AP) — Call it a heifer hot pursuit.

The Delaware County Daily Times reports it took officers about an hour to round up a slaughter-bound cow that got loose in a borough adjoining Philadelphia.

Upper Darby police Superintendent Michael Chitwood says the cow was reported loose Saturday night. He says his officers pursued it in their cruisers and eventually cornered it in an alley by blocking it in.

During its dash to freedom the cow ran into a car, causing minor damage.

An employee for the butcher soon arrived and lassoed the creature.
