• What should you do, cows in the middle of the road?

    I was driving home from my boyfriends house last night it was around 11:30 pm and especially dark as it was cloudy. I could first see their glowing eyes and thought they may have been deer. As I got closer though and slowed down to a stop it turned out to be at least 4 cows in the middle of the road. So they obviously got away from their farm.

    They got scared by my close car and started to walk down the street which I didn’t want them to do since I’m sure they were close to their farm. Though soon they just walked off the side of the road following each other. I didn’t know what to do so didn’t do anything except continue driving after they were all off the road. No one else was around.

    You could possibly call the police station but I didn’t know the number you could also probably call 911. Though I still didn’t know exactly where I was so didn’t know how to explain to anyone how to get there. Like I know how to get from and to my house by looks but I’m not to good when it comes to street or even town names.

    Hopefully the farmer or a local neighbor finds them and knows what to do with them before one of them got in an accident. As they were almost fully black cows with just a little white. So what should someone do in this situation?
