The owners of a nearby bed and breakfast said Meteor showed right up in their driveway.

A yak is still on the loose in Virginia after escaping a trip to the butcher.

Named Meteor, the animal is 3 years old and weighs 300 pounds.

Meteor’s owner, Robert Cissell, said the yak freed itself by kicking off the back door of a livestock trailer about 10 a.m. Tuesday.

The yak has been spotted around the area, according to the Washington Post. Officials think he is nearby, within 2 or 3 miles. 

The owners of a nearby bed and breakfast said Meteor showed right up in their driveway.

Cissell says he plans on luring the yak back by putting sweet feed and apples in a trailer.
