State police say a pair of amorous bovines tied up traffic near the intersection of two rural Pennsylvania highways.
The incident was first reported Friday morning. Trooper John Corna says it was resolved about 9:15 a.m. when state Department of Agriculture managed to shoo the bull and cow into a trailer.
Corna says the intersection of Routes 28 and 85 in Rayburn Township is busier than usual because of construction, and traffic
was hampered when the mating bovines refused to budge. The
intersection is about 40 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Corna says troopers "kept trying to shoo them off the highway, but that just got the bull mad and it started to escalate."
The animals are at a nearby farm until their owner is identified.
