Police needed the help of some real-life cowboys to tame an escaped bull that had been on a three-day rampage.
The beast escaped from Smith Farm in Massachusetts, US, before crossing into neighbouring New Hampshire, according to Pelham Police Department.
Corporal Brian Kelly said it was first spotted in a wooded area, making it extremely difficult to catch.

Kelly told Boston.com: "[It] was difficult to track down during the day, but we would get calls in the evening with sightings. We’d call the owner, but by the time anything could be done the bull would be back in the woods."
In a desperate bid to get his animal back, the bull's owner then contacted a cowboy service from New York for assistance.
The cowboys travelled to Pelham and, after a three-day search, it was finally tamed on Wednesday (July 13).
Kelly continued: "In my 15 years on the job, I've never seen anything like this. I'm not usually used to cowboys with lassos riding down Route 38.
"The bull wasn’t too happy, but as far as I know he’s home, safe and uninjured."
