A Longhorn on the loose in Colorado Springs, Colorado, sent people to escape after the cow escaped a nearby cattle drive and ran into a bank. According to NBC subsidiary KOAA News in Pueblo, Colorado, the cow is named Theme De Loof drove to a bank on the Plaza of the Rockies on Friday seemed to be empty and sent people out of the way.
Russell Freeman, owner of the Freeman Ranch, told KOAA that the 16-year-old cow belonged to him. Freeman said he thinks she panics.
"That's a nice cow, she's not wild or crazy, but in the city she's in a panic," he explained. "And just like the people who were screaming when they saw a cow, she was out of element, that's the same thing she did, she just screamed and was nervous."
The cow was part of the Longhorn Cattle Drive in the city center
Two cowboys on horses could compete with the runaway cow. There were no reports of injuries.
"To have so much activity in public and not to break a glass and hurt anyone … God has taken care of us," Freenan told KOAA.
