WILLIAMSON COUNTY, Tenn. (WKRN) – An unusual call in Williamson County gave new meaning to the state’s “moo-ve” over law Monday night.
Multiple agencies responded to the northbound on-ramp from I-840 to I-65 on Monday, Oct. 2 after receiving reports of a tractor-trailer on fire.
At the scene, first responders discovered that cows were being hauled by tractor-trailer when it caught fire.
According to Williamson County EMA, the driver released the cows to keep them safe, which led them to roam around the interstate.
With the help of animal control and some local ranchers, the cows were rescued and loaded into another trailer.
No injuries were reported to the animals or the tractor-trailer driver.
