WICHITA — The Monday morning commute was a moo-oo-ving experience for traffic coming east on K-96 in western Sedgwick County today, thanks to an unusual road hazard: cows.
Several cattle escaped from fencing between 135th and 151st next to K-96 just before 8 a.m., and they drifted onto the east side of the freeway, authorities said.
No accidents were reported, and the cattle were contained by shortly before 8:20 a.m., a Kansas Highway Patrol dispatcher said.
Sedgwick County Animal Control and Maize Police officers assisted highway patrol troopers with containing the cattle.
