Runaway Cow Causes Beef With New Jersey Highway Drivers

PATERSON, N.J. (CBSNewYork) - A "mooing" violation was cited this morning for a cow loose on a New Jersey highway.

A loose bovine named Brianna was first spotted on Route 19 just south of Route 80 near Paterson around 4 a.m. this morning.

The cow was been captured and secured to the back of a tow truck, but not before causing some beef with drivers.

The runaway cow snarled traffic on the roadway for about an hour.

Officials say Brianna was on the way to a slaughterhouse in Paterson when she slipped away.

Vets checked her and gave her a clean bill of health. What's better? She'll spend the rest of her days resting at an animal sanctuary in Sussex County.
