Update below: A brown baby cow was found running near the Major Deegan Expressway on Tuesday afternoon.
According to the NYPD, the tiny bovine was found at 149th Street and Major Deegan, running on the highway towards the George Washington Parkway. Officials caught the cow around noon at East 153rd Street and River Avenue (the exit for Yankee Stadium), and have taken it into custody, they tell Gothamist. A handful of officers were seen tying the calf to a light pole in the median, as Channel 4 reports.

CBS News notes that the cow is set to be taken to Animal Care and Control facility in Manhattan, and later to Skyland Sanctuary, a New Jersey animal rescue service.
Update: As of right now, it's unclear how the cow made its way onto the road, or where it came from. He's since been named Major Deegan by NYPD, as Pix 11 reports, and you can see him serenely hanging out in the video below.
