A cow got loose in Bible Hill, N.S., Thursday afternoon, resulting in several traffic disruptions and delayed dismissals at schools.

Nova Scotia RCMP say they received a complaint at 1:15 p.m., of a cow running through the streets of Valley and Bible Hill.

Police say the cow escaped its enclosure in nearby Salmon River, and it was a danger to traffic and pedestrians as it ran down streets, through backyards, and wooded areas of the primarily suburban area.

Officers were forced to keep traffic controlled in areas where the cow was running until it eventually found its way onto a frozen section of the Salmon River where it was contained by workers.

It was then secured and returned to the enclosure.

No one — including the cow — was injured.
