Moove over!: State Police help rescue cow on I-75
The steaks were high
OAKLAND COUNTY, Mich. (WILX) - Michigan State Police (MSP) assisted in rescuing a cow that managed to escape and run onto I-75 in Oakland County Sunday.
MSP Troopers were requested for traffic control along I-75 near Belford Road just before 3 p.m. to help a team of wranglers attempting to catch a cow.
The cow was stuck in a gravel pit on Belford Road—Troopers were on standby to stop traffic on I-75 if necessary.
The wranglers were on the shoulder of I-75 with horses and four-wheelers when they attempted to capture the suspect bovine but were unsuccessful.
“The cow managed to outsmart its [adversaries] and entered the northbound lanes of I-75,” said MSP.
The wranglers chased the cow with four-wheelers, horses and lassos across all lanes of travel.
Troopers shut down the north and southbound lanes of I-75 for safety.
“Eventually, after much tomfoolery, the critter was captured and removed from the freeway,” said MSP. “The bovine was not charged and is back in the pasture with a story to tell all the other livestock.”
