NEW YORK -- Moo-ve over -- cow coming through.

A cow got loose in Queens, New York, early Thursday morning, sending police officers on a wild chase, CBS New York reports.

The animal escaped from a slaughterhouse in Jamaica, Queens.

Dashcam video posted to Twitter showed the cow running through the intersection at 164th Street and Jamaica Avenue in the outer New York City borough.

The animal was tracked down at a parking garage.

Police reported no injuries.

Azan Kahn said the cow had been delivered from Upstate New York, and was being transferred from a trailer when he got loose.

"The trailer guy bring the cow to take him in the pen. I want to bring him in the pen. That's how escape, in the pen so we can't catch him. He just run away. That's it," Kahn said.

Often times animal escapees are pardoned and end up on greener pastures, but no such luck for this courageous cow, CBS New York reports.
