Cattle Corral Concludes: Last cow caught from highway crash
ATLANTA (AP) - Officials say a cow who managed to hoof it for two weeks on the lam after a tractor-trailer overturned on a busy interstate junction north of Atlanta has been caught.
News outlets report 89 cows escaped when the livestock truck transporting them flipped Oct. 1 around 3 a.m. on the cloverleaf of Interstate 75 and I-285. Eleven cows were killed in the wreck.
The Georgia Department of Transportation's metro Atlanta district tweeted a photo Monday morning of the final cow in a wooded area. Department spokeswoman Natalie Dale says crews safely captured it in the afternoon.
The department previously said that the roundup after the crash included real cowboys. Some roads were closed and police dealt with four wrecks caused by the wandering cattle. No one was injured in the four accidents.
