Feb. 12 (UPI) -- A student at North Dakota State University captured video of an unusual spectacle at the the school -- an escaped cow running loose through campus.

The student said they returned to the Fargo campus Thursday around lunchtime and was approached by a friend who asked if they had seen a cow.


"I normally have a reflex of recording everything I think is funny and posting it on Snapchat, so I took my phone out to record," the student wrote.

"The cow had been running up the street and was really far away. I never thought the cow would get so close to a very popular building. The cow was just not having it and didn't want to be corralled. I assumed the cow escaped from the agricultural or animal sciences building just a few blocks down. Eventually, the cow ran back towards those buildings in the north direction out of my sight."

Sadie Rudolph, NDSU's media relations coordinator, said the cow was recaptured after it became tired from running. She said the bovine was part of the "Little I" Livestock Show, which was hosted by the school's Saddle and Sirloin Club during the weekend.
