May 23 (UPI) -- Police in Missouri shared dashboard camera footage of an unusual chase involving two escaped longhorns wandering city roads.

The Kansas City Police Department said offers in the Shoal Creek area spent hours chasing the steers through multiple neighborhoods.


The chase took place May 13, but an edited video of the encounter was released Wednesday.

"We're police officers, not cowboys. It escaped the yard and is now mobile again," an officer says in the footage.

Police were able to guide one of the steers back to its owner's property, while the other was cornered in another residence's yard and taken back home. Neither animal was injured.
