CINCINNATI – Authorities near Cincinnati say a car struck and killed a cow that had wandered onto an interstate, and a second cow had to be shot to avoid another accident.
The cows had gotten loose from a farm. Police shutdown Interstate 275 on the city's west side for about an hour early Friday morning.
The Hamilton County sheriff's office says the driver of the car that hit the animal wasn't injured.
Authorities say deputies called an animal protection agency and requested tranquilizers to subdue the other cow but were told the agency didn't have any. After deputies shot the animal, it wandered into the woods and died.
