Cows Overtake Roadway in New York Town

Eight cows in Ramapo, New York, escaped from a farm and ended up roaming on a road early Thursday morning, police said. 

Officers received a call that the escaped bovine were wondering on Saddle River Road near the Ascension Cemetery at about 3 a.m., authorities said.

Police said the cows were on a very dark stretch of the road, and feared they would pose a risk to drivers. 

The officers were able to corral the cows off the road and turned them over to a farmhand at a nearby farm where they had escaped at about 3:45 a.m.

No injuries were reported, police said.
