A heifer got loose at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo yesterday, causing some quick escapes by passers-by and round-up efforts by the cowboys in attendance.
It's not the first time this has happened at the HLS&R, but cows/bulls running loose isn't limited to Houston.
They can break out anywhere, and when they do hilarity can sometimes ensue. As long as no one gets hurt, of course.
Here are five video examples of temporary cow freedom:
This year's model of the loose heifer/bull. And remember, there's still three weeks of rodeo to go.
The bull's just pissed he forgot his coupons.
Uses the fence like a cowboy scraping mud off his boot.
Like everyone else, this bull fails to find any exciting nightlife in Auburn, Washington.
Another HLS&R escape, this time from 2010.
