SMALL HERD OF CATTLE TIE UP TRAFFIC

In Polk County, a “small herd” of 10 to 14 cows was running down U.S. Highway 2 when a deputy noticed them on Monday. Local law enforcement and the fire department attempted to stop the cattle as they continued to run around for more than two hours. According to other media reports, most of the cattle were rounded up and brought back to their owner, Mike Halland, without incident, but as of Monday evening, some of the cows were still said to be unaccounted for. The Polk County Sheriff’s Office asked anyone who comes across missing cattle not to approach the animals and to contact authorities.
