Rogue calf on the loose in Brooklyn

Baby cow running wild in Prospect Park after escaping slaughterhouse

A child suffered minor injuries after a bull got loose in Brooklyn Tuesday.

The bull escaped on Fourth Avenue near 16th Street in Park Slope and hoofed it to the Prospect Expressway and then south toward Prospect Park, police sources said.

The young bull was finally trapped in a long fenced-off area of the park, which had been closed off at least on one end by a police vehicle. Add New York as an interest to stay up to date on the latest New York news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

At other times the beast wandered curiously around the 212-acre Prospect Park, the largest in the borough of Brooklyn, and the artificial turf field normally used for human sporting events. It's not clear how seriously the child was hurt.

Police are responding to reports of a cow on the loose in Prospect Park, the NYPD said.

Its remains unclear where the cow came from or how it got to the NY borough.

In February of this year, a bull that was captured after escaping from a slaughterhouse in Queens died before it could be taken to an animal sanctuary.

Twitter users joked about the loose cow and enjoyed the levity of the story.
