Cow Snarls I-285 Traffic In Atlanta (Yes, I Said Cow)


I try to avoid I-285 around Atlanta because, invariably, there's a delay. But I've never encountered a delay like this!

Saturday, a cow fell out of a livestock trailer and went running down the Interstate. Needless to say, it created a bit of traffic havoc.

But the hour-long backup came to an end thanks to Dunwoody police and a passerby with a rope.

Surprisingly, this is not the first time Atlanta's had traffic headaches caused by cows. At least this one ended happily (depending, of course, on where they were taking the cow in the first place.)
