LOS ANGELES, California -- A wayward cow was captured in Los Angeles after wandering onto a freeway and later leading animal control officers on a chase on surface streets.

The animal was reported running in lanes on the eastbound side of the freeway shortly before noon, according to a California Highway Patrol incident log. Multiple drivers stopped their vehicles in an effort to help.

The cow exited the freeway and was followed by animal control officers into a parking lot.

Efforts to corral the animal were not immediately successful, and it made its way onto a ranch-like property.

There it was lassoed and, after an apparent struggle with several officers and ranch hands, was captured.
