Run-away cows turn Minnesota deputies into cowboys

They got the chance to practice their herding skills.

Six cows gave officials in Chisago County a chance to practice their herding skills.

The animals escaped from their home during the snowstorm Saturday night and wound up in trouble with local authorities. The Chisago County Sheriff's Office tweeted the whole ordeal Sunday morning.

The cows roamed about 3 miles, including crossing over two highways, the sheriff's office tweeted. They even paid a visit to a Rush City resident, who tweeted she saw the escaped cows through her window while she was eating breakfast.

After three hours of herding, officials had captured almost all of the cows (unfortunately one of the cows was hit by a vehicle), while one cow is still on the run.
