Cow on the loose shuts down I-16 ramp


SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – The Savannah Police Department had to close down a ramp on Interstate 16 early Tuesday afternoon as crews worked to catch a cow on the loose.

Chatham County Animal Services responded to the scene to try to get the animal to safety.

“Thanks for your patience while we moooove it out the way,” Savannah Police tweeted.

The ramp from eastbound I-16 to I-516 was shut down shortly after noon until almost 2 p.m. when the cow was caught. No collisions were reported as a result of the traffic situation.

Police are still looking for the owner of the cow, who they’ve renamed LEOnora. They say she’s very young, maybe around the age of 1.

Anyone who knows her owners are asked to call Savannah Police Headquarters at 912-651-6675.

“Let them know you have a tip on the cow (tip on cow, not cow tipper please — that’s not cool),” the department wrote on Facebook.
