As we approached the field a herd of cows, bulls, and calves came towards us.” The witness added that a woman came over who was the daughter of the farmer who owns the cow. The witness added, “she managed to walk the cow safely back to the field.” It took half an hour for the cow to get back into the field. Traffic is now moving freely.
