WEST MONROE, La. (KNOE 8 News) - The "mysterious steer" who has been roaming West Monroe since a roping competition this weekend has been caught.

West Monroe Police confirm that the animal was found around 1:00 am near Jonesboro and Stella road. That means he crossed over both Downing Pines Roads and Thomas Roads in his escape. 

Police say he was making his way toward I20 and they had to euphemize him for the public's safety.

He was last seen roaming Restoration Park in West Monroe. The 500-pound steer escaped from the Ike Hamilton Expo Center on Saturday where it was part of a roping competition.
