Cow tied to highway guardrail
MANCHESTER, Conn. (AP) - November 11, 2010 -- Yes, that was a cow tied to a guardrail on Interstate 84 in Connecticut.
State police say a motorist was forced to pull to the side of the westbound lanes Wednesday morning in Vernon after the cow somehow damaged the walls of the trailer in which it was being transported.
The cow was tied to the guardrail for about 40 minutes, while the motorist made repairs. It was gone by 9:40 a.m.
Lt. Paul Vance, a state police spokesman, said the cow was a curiosity, but did not cause any major traffic problems.
