Trailer spills cows onto highway

PORTAGE, Mich.--   Portage Public Safety officers are investigating how two cows fell out of a cattle trailer and onto the highway.

Officers were called to southbound U.S. 131 north of W. Centre Avenue around 11:22 a.m. Tuesday.  A passerby told dispatchers a cattle trailer had opened and dropped two cows onto the highway.

One of the cows was injured and had to be euthanized at the scene.  The other cow was loaded back onto the trailer without incident.  Crews with the Michigan Department of Transportation removed the dead cow from the scene.
