Cow Causes Curiosity on Connecticut Highway

View Comments

MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) – Yes, that was a cow tied to the guardrail on Interstate 84 in Vernon.

State police say a motorist was forced to pull to the side of the westbound side of the highway Wednesday morning after the cow somehow damaged the walls to the trailer in which it was being transported.
The cow was tied to the guardrail for about 40 minutes, while the motorist made repairs. It was gone by 9:40 a.m.

Lt. Paul Vance, a state police spokesman, says the cow was a curiosity, but did not cause any major traffic problems and was not cited for a moo-ving violation.
