Holy Cow! Loose cows have invaded a West Virginia town. Another herd of loose cows has taken over a U.S. town. This time it happened in West Virginia. On Thursday a cattle truck overturned on Interstate 64, authorities say. The crash sent dozens of cows running in all directions, with several crossing a bridge into Lawrence County, Ohio. The highway was shut down for several hours as animal control officials and police officers rounded up the escape cows. The incident marked the third time this week that cows have gotten loose in the U.S. — and the second in West Virginia. That’s something I never thought I’d say. Are cows dangerous? While most cows are very used to being around humans they do have the ability to seriously hurt or injure humans so it’s best to remain cautious if you come across one. On the subject of cows does anyone else wonder why any time you see a cartoon or image of a cow it’s the black and white Ben & Jerry’s type, but I never actually see those in real life?
Enjoy some highlights of Twitter reacting to the news of the escape cows:
apparently a bunch of cows got loose on the interstate for the second time this week and I just have to wonder why is West Virginia like this— hades (@d_kimb87) June 24, 2021
Between Baby Dog and the cows shutting down the interstate, West Virginia is just a real life episode of Parks and Rec and it never ends.— Kelsey Cox (@KelseyJenelle) June 24, 2021
You know you’re in West Virginia when the highway is blocked off bc a cattle trailer was turned over and 50 cows are roaming around 😅— O (@paymeinbooks) June 24, 2021
Today in #WestVirginia: missed my first college orientation meeting bc I got stuck behind a large wreck that resulted in numerous cows (??) wandering across all 4 west & eastbound lanes of I64 & a nearby county rd. ~dozen first responder vehicles. But anyway saw cows so yay— Benjamin Woodard aka Senator MothManchin (@unsocialhistory) June 24, 2021
They say things happen in threes so maybe this will be the last loose cow news for a little while.
