Mad rush of the rebel cow, old west scenes along a highway

A cow escaping on the highway. We are in Oakland County, Michigan, USA, and the scene captured by the police car camera looks like a movie set. 

A policeman manoeuvres the quad bike, trying to give direction to the cattle, the patrol car stops traffic, while the cowboy twirls the rope trying to lasso it but with little result. 

After a few minutes and several attempts the cowboy made the decisive throw and the animal was caught and returned to its herd in excellent condition.

The pursuit
After ascertaining the situation, the officers immediately contacted a cowboy to help them capture the cow. Initially, the cowboy tried to approach with his horse slowly so as not to frighten the animal, but to no avail. The cow continued to run away, while the officers continued to follow them in their car, avoiding losing sight of the animal.

The cowboy feat
After a few minutes, the herdsman managed to lasso the cow, but it was not easy. The animal, still frightened, resisted capture for a few moments. The officers paid close attention and co-operated with the cowboy to prevent the animal from injuring itself or anyone else.
