    Cow corralled after mooooving violation

    I guess you gotta love those PIOs with a sense of humor.


    This is a press release courtesy of the Multnomah County Sheriff's Department
    On Monday, Feb. 2, at high noon, a short chase of a loose 650-pound yearling steer ensued on Interstate 84 in the Troutdale area around the Sandy River overpass.
    The steer, wanted for reckless hoofing, had gotten loose from a trailer full of other young steers being transported by a Corbett rancher.
    A Troutdale police officer, who was first on the scene, pursued the felonious steer on both sides of the freeway at speeds approaching, at times, 8 miles per hour.
    The steer, whose name is not being released, was finally 'pitted' and pinned against a guard rail by Multnomah County Deputies until a good Samaritan, a cowboy from Ft. Wayne, Indiana, who happened to be passing by, got out of his truck and 'bulldogged' the bad bull until Multnomah County Animal Control could take it into custody.
    Traffic was briefly snarled both east and westbound; the animal was not injured and was returned to the owner.

    At least it was a Hoosier that saved the day! I just didn't know there were cowboys in Fort Wayne, a city of about 250,000.

    Sad thing, where I work, we have the cows get out a couple times a year. We have a farm right on the edge of town, nothing like having cows roaming downtown
    Somebody Please, what the hell is that smell?

    The views, opinions, stupid off the cuff comments, mouthy, obnoxious, thoughtless, etc etc etc are not always or even some of the time the belief of my department, so bugger off!

    We have to "corral" livestock almost on a daily basis.

    Our newest guy on our department, his very first call was some roaming cows in town.

    Nothing like hot pursuit of cattle your first day in town
