A menacing pregnant cow that had been roaming the streets and backyards of a Washington, D.C., suburb after escaping her farm has been tranked and captured.

Fairfax County Police say the Scottish Highland cow escaped Thursday from a farm in Fairfax. Police received several calls over the next two days, often from people who mistook the aggressive, horned cow for a bull.

Officers spotted the cow Saturday afternoon coming out of the woods in Centreville, The Associated Press reported. Police say the cow charged the officers and fled through neighborhood yards. Police spokeswoman Lucy Caldwell said the cow was eventually subdued with tranquilizers shot from a dart gun.

The cow was not injured, but a veterinarian who aided the rescue suffered minor injuries. Police say possible charges against the cow's owners are pending.
