Escaped Bulls Duke It Out During Runaway Cow Incident in Popular KY Park
So how did you start your Friday? You fed the pet, had breakfast, and went to work? The usual, right? You didn't have to deal with a small herd of bovines and their contentious alphas, did you? I thought not.
Well, that just means you don't work for the city of Louisville. Deduction, my friend, deduction.
THANK GOD, IT'S FRIDAY...LET'S GO HERD CATTLE
And no, not ALL city workers patrol public parks, making them safe for visitors, but those that do are on the payroll. And I would bet that even THOSE employees had no idea what was in front of them when they awoke Friday morning.
A traffic accident on Interstate 64 in Louisville caused enough damage to one big rig that some cattle it was carrying escaped into the city and, specifically, Cherokee Park. One of Louisville's most popular public parks, Cherokee Park is accustomed to having visits from deer, but not cows, as the man in this interview pointed out.
CATTLE ON THE LOOSE IN A POPULAR LOUISVILLE PARK
By noon, Louisville time, six of the cows had been safely captured, but not before they headed toward the golf course. I wonder what their handicaps are.
MAYBE THE CATTLE WERE TRYING NOT TO MISS THEIR TEE TIMES
Well, it looks like WDRB sports writer Rick Bozich was right. They DID wind up on the golf course. What an interesting surprise for THOSE two duffers.
But cows were not the only bovine creatures officials had to deal with on this suddenly bizarre Friday. Yes, cows are one thing; bulls are quite another...especially when they don't seem to like each other.
IRRITABLE BULLS WERE ALSO SPOTTED IN CHEROKEE PARK
I'm not sure HOW they wrangled those bulls, but that was an added ingredient I'm sure city crews didn't welcome.
You know, it was almost exactly 18 months ago when we learned that Lexington police were on the lookout for a buffalo that was running loose through the city.
I wonder what hooved mammal will enter the spotlight in 2023...and where?
