    A cow that had been running loose down Interstate 295 in Hamilton Township, New Jersey appears to have been corralled.

    The bovine broke out into a trot down the busy highway near the exit ramp for Route 29 around 9 a.m., but was eventually cornered by state police officers and tranquilized to be transported out of the way.

    Police tied the cow to a guardrail where it later expired, according to Sgt. Stephen Jones.

    No official word on where the cow came from or who it belonged to.
