Southlake DPS officers wrangle escaped calf to safety

A day on the job was anything but normal for two Southlake DPS officers who turned into ranch hands.

The department just released video on Wednesday of maybe the cutest fugitive takedown ever.

A few months back, Officer Craig Damico got the call to check out some loose livestock near Northwest Highway. He says a calf was running just outside of its fence when he pulled up.

Officer Damico, who is a self-proclaimed ‘city boy,’ saw the calf as it was about to run into traffic on the highway. He wasn’t sure if the calf would bite him, but he took his chances.

Luckily, the calf did not bite. Officers managed to wrangle the cow way from the highway and plopped it back over the fence.
