Why did the cows cross the road? They were allowed to, that’s why.
Brandon RCMP were forced to rustle up some cattle Wednesday when a herd of livestock found its way on the Trans-Canada Highway in the R.M. of North Cypress, about 35 kilometres east of Brandon.
Police later determined that two metal tube gates were stolen from a nearby pasture, allowing the cattle to wander out onto the highway.
If anyone has information on this incident, please contact Brandon RCMP at 204-726-7522 or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 (TIPS).
