Police in Boone, North Carolina, got some unexpected help tracking a suspect.

On Tuesday, the Boone Police Department chased a suspect who sped away from a traffic stop.

The suspect left his vehicle and ran to an undeveloped area, making it hard to find him.

Luckily, a herd of cows led the BPD to the suspect, who has been charged.

According to police, the cows gathered together and led them to the suspect.

“Officers noticed when they were conducting their ground search for the individual that cows in a certain pasture began moving,” Sargeant Dennis O’Neal told WCNC Charlotte.

“Based on that movement, they felt like the suspect was in the area of the cows. So that’s how the cows assisted with his capture.”

No word on whether the cows had previous beef with the suspect.
