WATCH: Florida Man Tries to Lasso Cow Slowing Down Highway Traffic

The runaway cow was causing major delays on I-75 near Tampa.

TAMPA, FLORIDA — Sunshine State cowboys starred in a classic “Florida Man” story on Monday after they rescued a runaway cow clogging up traffic on the highway.

Local ranchers managed to detain the cow after it had begun roaming near interstate 75 causing major delays in traffic, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office tweeted a video of the rescue operation, calling it “udderly great news.”

Although the aerial footage doesn’t show the moment the cow was subdued, one of the cowboys is shown readying his rope to reel in the stray cow.
