Police officer tries to catch runaway cow, gets chased instead

A police officer has serious beef with a runaway cow he was trying to wrangle in Temple, Texas.

Dash cam video posted by the police department shows the officer was trying to chase down the farm animal who had escaped a veterinary clinic.

After circling the creature for a while, he finally managed to guide her into a chain link fence -- but as he got out of the car to close the gate behind her, the cow got her revenge.
