Steer runs free in Brooklyn

- A steer got loose in Brooklyn Tuesday morning.

Video from SkyFoxHD shows the steer trotting around a soccer field at the Prospect Park Parade Ground while cops try to corner it.

Dozens of people gathered at the field's fences to watch the unusual event unfold.

Authorities used tranquilizer darts to subdue the bovine and then safely corral it, load it onto a police horse trailer, and whisk it away to the relief of those watching.

The NYPD said the steer possibly escaped from a nearby slaughterhouse because it had tags around its neck.
