State police say a pair of amorous bovines tied up traffic near the intersection of two rural Pennsylvania highways.
The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported the situation Friday
morning. Trooper John Corna tells The Associated Press it was
resolved about 9:15 a.m. when state Department of Agriculture
managed to shoo the bull and cow into a trailer.
Corna says the intersection of Routes 28 and 85 in Rayburn
Township is busier than usual because of construction, and traffic
was hampered when the mating bovines refused to budge. The
intersection is about 40 miles northeast of Pittsburgh.
Corna says troopers "kept trying to shoo them off the highway,
but that just got the bull mad and it started to escalate."
The animals are at a nearby farm until their owner is
