YORKTOWN, Va. (WVEC) -- Be on the look out: an 'elusive bovine' is on the run.

The York-Poquoson Sheriff's Office tweeted that a cow has been on the loose in the wooded area near Penniman Road.

A sergeant has put down hay not far from where the animal is bedding, and Animal Control plans to catch the heifer and deliver it to a rescue facility.

If anyone sees the animal, they are asked to contact police.

It's unclear for how long the rogue cow has been at large.
