California Highway Patrol and Elk Grove Police Department officers shut down a section of Highway 50 in the Sacramento, California area on Thursday. They did so when they noticed motorists slowing down and pulling over to avoid hitting a stray dog on the highway. Police got out and pursued the suspect on foot, but he escaped.

They were, however, more successful on Wednesday. Then the two law enforcement agencies chased a stray cow. After a 4 hour pursuit, they captured her with the assistance of a lasso-wielding cowboy on horseback.
