CHRISTCHURCH , New Zealand, Sept. 15 (UPI) -- A young cow in New Zealand was scooped up by police after being seen wandering around local streets.

Canterbury Police shared a photo of the criminal calf riding in the back of a patrol car after receiving reports from residents.

"Police picked up the friendly bobby calf in Phillipstown, after receiving reports that a 'cattlebeast' was wandering on the road," police wrote.

According to Stuff, the calf was handed over to animal control where it will be re-homed after spending a night in jail.

"He was taken back to the cells for the night but feeding him proved tricky, with not a lot of grass to be had at the station and the calf having an apparent aversion to trim milk," police said.
