MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - Traffic was slow mooooving for a bit in Montgomery after three cows escaped a cattle truck on Interstate 65 South.

According to Captain Regina Duckett with the Montgomery Police Department, the truck was stopped near the Fairview exit when a cow and two calves got out of the trailer. Alabama Department of Transportation video showed one's journey down the road, weaving between lanes while vehicles stopped behind it.

Eventually, a couple of motorists got out and wrassled the cow over to the guard rail, where they held it until officers arrived. Duckett said all three were rounded up and returned to the trailer.

A calf was later caught Monday night on one of the embankments in the intersection of I-65 and Fairview Avenue.

The question that remains on everyone's mind: why did the cow cross the road?
