Cows are on the loose after overtuned cattle car

KANSAS CITY, Missouri -- A cattle truck overturned in Kansas City Thursday afternoon. Police say that at least 90 cows were aboard and got loose.

It seems it took longer to secure the livestock than expected, with police tweeting that there was still livestock on the road hours later. With the livestock spreading, the perimeter had to be expanded.

Police are using a drone to find some of the cattle, but there's no telling how long it will take for them all to be rounded up.

KCTV reports that the truck was on fire briefly after the crash. The driver of the semi was slightly injured.

Ranchers did show up at the scene to help crews wrangle the cattle that got loose.
