Police in Rome, Illinois, reportedly used AR-15s to shoot an escaped cow dead after it began to cause problems in the area.
The cow had reportedly broken loose from a barn and started to roam a nearby neighborhood. Police responded and spent hours trying to corral the bovine. However, eventually the owner asked them to put the cow down, as he had planned to butcher it anyways.
According to police, they then used their AR-15s to take down the cow quickly, which was then given to the owner to be butchered.
