According to several news outlets, a herd of roughly 34 cows stampeded through a neighborhood in Los Angeles after managing to escape from a slaughterhouse near the area.
The incident happened at approximately 8:35 p.m. on Tuesday, June 22, 2021 in Pico Rivera, California.
Via a report by a local ABC News in Los Angeles, the LA County Sheriff’s Department responded to calls of several cows that were reportedly running down streets, weaving through neighborhood yards, and trampling bushes.
At least one person was injured in the stampede, and one cow was shot and killed by a deputy during the incident when it appeared that one of the cows was making a move to run over a baby.
Most of them were eventually caught at the end of a cul-de-sac in Pico Rivera by around 10:20 p.m..
A statement from the LA County Sheriff’s Department said that most of the cows had been detained. Some reported that at least one cow was still on the loose until after 11 p.m.
