Wranglin' on the Highway

If you thought calf ropin’ was an obsolete skill only seen in rodeos, you haven’t been to Oklahoma. The KOCO Sky 5 helicopter is used to following Oklahoma City traffic jams and the rare police chase, but Monday morning it was a juvenile cow being chased down the road. The bovine was first spotted on Interstate 40 near Pennsylvania Avenue, and was chased down a service road by trucks, golf carts, and emergency services, all caught on video by the traffic helicopter. Two cowboys with considerable skills managed to lasso and tie the cow within minutes.

The cowboy who lassoed the cow on his first try was Blake Igert, a contractor for Oklahoma National Stockyards. He saddled up and rushed into action through morning traffic when he got a call about a cow loose on the highway. We’ve seen many examples of street theater, but this is street rodeo!  -via Boing Boing
