How about an old-fashioned stakeout?

A loose bull that caused quite the commotion after wandering through a park in New York City's Brooklyn borough has been captured.

The animal was sighted in public shortly before 11:30 a.m. ET, when several Twitter users said they had watched it running on nearby streets and sidewalks.

The bull was taken to an animal shelter in East New York. Around noon, it entered the sports complex. But like an elusive Lionel Moosi, this cow wasn't to be corralled so easily. It then continued to roam through the field, as a large crowd gathered outside a fence. As seen in the live footage above, the bull remains on the soccer field as it gains an audience and is surrounded by authorities.

"@barmstr546 (Replying to @ABC7NY): Yes, we've "herd". On social media, many sounded off.

At least two other cows were found running through NY since the beginning of 2016.

The NYPD's Emergency Services Unit trapped the bull in a dugout near Coney Island and Caton Aves., where the Animal Care Centers of NYC (ACC) used a tranquilizer to sedate the animal.
