Bull wanders onto California freeway, shuts down traffic
Rancho Cucamonga, California (AP)-- Traffic was halted on a Southern California highway when a bull that was grazing along the shoulder wandered into lanes.
Video aired by ABC 7 showed the large bull meandering on northbound Interstate 15 in Rancho Cucamonga Wednesday evening with two California Highway Patrol vehicles in slow pursuit.
Highway patrol officers stopped traffic and eventually corralled the animal off the highway northeast of Los Angeles.
About an hour later Caltrans tweeted that the bull had been “safely recovered .... And fed.” All lanes were reopened.
SBCO: NB I-15 south of Baseline in Rancho Cucamonga. All lanes blocked due to a loose cow. Unknown duration of when the animal will stop eating grass. Please use alternate route until animal control can safely remove animal. #Caltrans8 pic.twitter.com/IiN4wxbG2U— Caltrans District 8 (@Caltrans8) August 12, 2021
It wasn’t clear where the bull had come from or how it had gotten loose.
