METAIRIE, LA (WVUE) - A cow busted free from a cattle trailer Tuesday morning, hoofing it through a Metairie neighborhood.

The incident happened at 10:30 a.m. near the intersection of Clearview Parkway and West Napoleon, where the cow somehow broke free into traffic and was hit by a car.

Photos show the small cow moooving through the neighborhood, romping across busy streets and front yards, apparently uninjured.

The cow made it several blocks and into a backyard before it was rounded up and secured back in the trailer. Viewers reported seeing the cow near the intersection of Woodlawn Avenue and Chenet Street.

No one was injured in the incident, and the driver of the trailer was not cited.

Video of a man attempting to wrangle the cow was sent in by a viewer. Mobile users can watch here: http://on.fb.me/1JqGkdU
