Ohio St. gets livestock lesson from roaming cows
COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) - April 22, 2010 -- Two cows got loose on the Ohio State University campus, leading some students to skip classes to watch a roundup that lasted more than 90 minutes.
Police say the pair of Belted Galloway cows got away Wednesday afternoon as their owner was trying to take them into the university's veterinary medical center to have their hooves trimmed.
They made their way onto a soccer field, where one of them was lassoed as students cheered "Ole!"
The other ran across traffic on a bridge and settled in under a grove of trees. It was caught after a Columbus Zoo veterinarian hit it with a tranquilizer dart.
The owner took the cows back home. A police officer was treated for a shoulder injury.
