WILSONVILLE, Ore. – More than two dozen cows roamed loose on Interstate 5 in Oregon Sunday after the big rig trailer they were riding in tipped over, along with the tractor.
According to the Oregon State Police (OSP), around 25 cows had to be rounded up and loaded onto an undamaged trailer for safe transport.
However, several of the cows were so badly injured that they had to be shot on site, according to the OSP.
