At least 34 cows were reportedly seen stampeding down streets and across lawns in Pico Rivera around 8:30 p.m. PT. The Los Angele County Sheriff’s Department told people to avoid the area.
One of the cows charged a man who was taken to a hospital afterward, according to FOX 11 of Los Angeles. The cow was later shot and killed by an officer, KABC-TV in Los Angeles reported.
Another cow was hit by a car but walked away from the incident, FOX 11 reported.
By 10: 20 p.m., authorities had caught most of the cows and gotten them into trailers, KABC reported.
It wasn’t immediately clear how the cows escaped.
