HOUSTON — Aug. 3 was an extremely smell day for people living at the intersections of Hardy and Cavalcade streets in Houston.
A truck hauling cow intestines somehow lost part of its load near the intersection, causing a rank smell that wafted for blocks.
City officials say crews got things cleaned up pretty quickly, but the smell hasn’t completely gone away.
“I have not ever encountered anything like this before,” area resident Tahj Scott said. “This is a first, but definitely the worst smell I ever smelled.”
There’s no word yet on what company owned the truck that spilled the innards or how the spill occurred.
