Escaped cow caught by police after A52 chase
An "agitated" cow has been cornered after being chased down a major road by police in Nottinghamshire.
The animal broke an electric fence in Bassingfield at 1230 GMT on Wednesday and headed for West Bridgford, leading police on an hour-long chase.
The animal raced along the A52 and charged at officers, then broke through three garden fences behind houses in Eltham Road.
The cow was captured and put into a trailer by its owner at 1335 GMT.
Pc Wendy Brown, one of the officers who caught the cow, said: "The animal was extremely agitated and we were considering whether we would need a vet to come out and sedate it.
"Thankfully we managed to calm it down enough to get it into a trailer.
"This was definitely one of the strangest incidents I've had to deal with and given the route the cow took it was extremely lucky nobody was injured."
