Just call it bovine intervention.
A herd of cows helped a North Carolina police department corral a suspect on the run.
The partnership began when a 34-year-old man fled during a traffic stop, according to a Facebook post from the Boone Police Department.
He led police on a chase and then abandoned his vehicle before setting out on foot into an undeveloped area, says the Facebook post. Because of how quickly he was driving, officers couldn't see exactly where he fled, the post says.
Officers "received some unexpected, but welcomed assistance from some local cows," according to the department.
The herd of cows were behooved to lead officers "directly to where the suspect was hiding," says the post.
"The cows communicated with the officers as best they could and finally just had the officers follow them to the suspect's location," joked the department in the post.
