Earlier this afternoon, the owner of  a 98 GMC pick-up truck was pulling a trailer with livestock, on Interstate 64, in the city of Chesapeake. At some point, the livestock, a cow, was able to get loose from the trailer, and jump off the trailer uninjured. The cow continued down the interstate for over a mile causing a backup in both the eastbound and westbound lanes of Interstate 64. With the assistance of Chesapeake Police Department, VDOT, and some helpful citizens, the cow is safely back with its owner.
