Four cows on the lam in Langley traffic

A small herd of cattle caused a bit of a traffic snarl Wednesday morning on the Langley Bypass after the cows got loose on the road.

The RCMP and Langley Animal Protection Society were both called at about 5:55 a.m.

According to Langley RCMP spokesperson Cpl. Holly Marks, the event was described as “traffic hazard, cows” on a report.

Police received a number of calls about the cattle milling around on the Bypass near Glover Road and the train crossing.

Officers arrived and helped the owner of the animals herd four back into the trailer.

The owner explained that he had been transporting the cattle from his property in Chilliwack to a slaughterhouse in Surrey. When he drove over the train tracks, the pin holding the trailer door popped out. Four cows escaped. None of the cows, nor the humans involved, were harmed.

The LAPS organization didn’t even have to head out, as the Mounties and owner rounded up the cattle fairly quickly.
