I-5 reopens in Marysville after cow on the loose briefly shuts down the roadway

A fish and wildlife official on a horse was able to wrangle the cow, reopening the roadway.

MARYSVILLE, Wash. — Interstate 5 northbound has reopened in Marysville after crews shut down the roadway to rescue a calf on the median, according to the Washington State Department of Transportation (WSDOT).

An official with the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife riding on a horse was able to wrangle the cow and get it into a trailer. Drivers were asked to use alternative routes while the rescue was underway. 

The Washington State Patrol (WSP) reported another sighting of the cow earlier in the day in Marysville. The cow was moving back and forth between local streets and the freeway and caused a rolling slow down on I-5 near the 156th Street exit. 

WSP Trooper Jacob Kennett said the cow has been on and off the roadway for two days in the Marysville area.
