LIVERPOOL, N.Y. (WSYR-TV) — At least four cows turned a parking lot in Liverpool into a playground for hours Tuesday.

New York State Police believe a farmer was getting off the New York State Thruway around 6:30 p.m. when a trailer carrying cattle came open. At least four cows made their way from the Thruway into Liverpool near the Thruway Office Building off of Voorhies Lane.

Troopers, Onondaga County Sheriff’s Deputies, and others spent hours trying get the cows to come back to the trailer.

At one point, officers tried to use their cars to coral the cows, but were unsuccessful.

One cow was found going through backyards further down 7th North Street.

Police have yet to say if any person or animal was injured.
