JACKSON, Miss. (WLBT) - Morning traffic was snagged for a while along I-20 westbound in Pearl Tuesday morning. A cow fell off a truck and made its way to the grassy shoulder of the roadway near Airport Road.
The original plan was to have the cow tranqulized by Rankin County Animal Control so it could be moved, but a city spokesman says the animal was too badly injured, and unfortunately it had to be euthanized.
A veterinarian was also on the scene. The animal was removed by MDOT.
