Cow Causing Traffic Chaos Corralled Off Georgia Interstate

A runaway cow halted traffic on I-285 in Dunwoody, Georgia, on Saturday morning, April 3, before several officers safely captured and returned the accidentally freed animal.

Footage captured by Sarah Joy Smith shows a Dunwoody police officer chasing the brown bovine down I-286.

Smith wrote on Facebook that she assumed a car accident had happened since she heard police sirens and saw traffic slowing down. That was until she turned to the left and saw the freed animal running between the cars.

Dunwoody Police said it had been determined the cow fell out of a livestock trailer, and that “with the assistance of a citizen with a rope, officers were able to safely capture the cow and get it back to its owner.” Credit: Sarah Joy Smith via Storyful
