Holy cow! Stray bull corralled off Route 195
HAMILTON (Mercer)— Police wrangled a wayward bull off a Central Jersey interstate on Sunday morning.
The bull showed up along the shoulder of Route 195 near Route 130 in Bordentown around 8:15 a.m., according to State Police. Troopers got help from people at the bull's home to lasso the cow off the highway and get it safely into a trailer.
State Police spokesman Sgt. Jeff Flynn said the bull made its way on a ramp onto Route 195. He referred questions about where the cow came from to Hamilton Police who have not yet returned a message.
Flynn said no officers, cowboys or the bull were injured in Sunday's incident.
A cow escaped the Trenton Halal Packing Company and headed toward Route 295 in 2015. It was shot with a tranquilizer gun and died shortly afterwards. More recently, a stray pig was brought to safety after being seeing wandering around Woolwich Township.
