A buffalo that roamed away from home has been recaptured after being cornered by police in Central Texas in a chase through a residential area.

Round Rock police were dispatched Friday morning when the owner reported the buffalo jumped some fences at a rural property and fled.

Patrol car video shows officers with flashing lights chasing the buffalo as it gallops along sidewalks, on grass and into streets.

Officers managed to secure the buffalo, safely returning the animal to its home.

The buffalo wasn't harmed. No officers were hurt.
