MESQUITE (CBSDFW.COM) - A herd of cattle caused a traffic mess in Mesquite early Thursday morning. Officials said that as many as 70 cows broke through a fence around 1:30 a.m. and got onto Interstate-20 near Lawson Road.

One cow was struck by a passing vehicle, but not killed. It eventually wandered back to join the rest of the herd. There were no people injured during the incident.

Police officers from Mesquite and deputies from the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office arrived on the scene to push the cattle back into their field. Traffic on the freeway was blocked while authorities got the animals contained.

According to the Dallas County Sheriff’s Office, the cattle were able to escape after someone stole the gate on their fence.
