KPLC can not confirm whether the officers were shooting tranquilizers or bullets

LAKE CHARLES, La. (BRPROUD/NBC Newschannel) – Cows shut down I-10 West at US 171 early this morning after they escaped from an overturned truck, according to KPLC.

The interstate remained closed for a few hours as the truck laid in the median.

The KPLC report states that at least one more crash took place because of the escaped cows.

As you can see in the video, the cows were tracked down by officers.

A camera crew from KPLC captured what looked like “officers shooting at several cows.”

I-10 West reopened around 8 a.m.
