Cattle On The Loose

Approximately sixty cattle were on the loose in eastern portions of the Yankton community earlier today.

After being notified of the situation by Cimpl Meat’s shortly after 6 AM Chief of Police Brian Paulsen says the first concern was to make sure that students on their way to school and other pedestrians were safe.

Paulsen says the assistance of workers from Cimpl Meats and Stockman’s Livestock was vital in helping to round up the stray cows.

Paulsen says no one was injured in the incident and as of early this afternoon only one head of cattle remained at large.
