These cows need to moo-ve out of the way.

An estimated 20-30 cows escaped their containers and stampeded through Pico Rivera and Whittier in Los Angeles Tuesday night.

The large cattle trekked indiscriminately through front- and backyards, disturbing the community well into the night. The already-startled cows encountered shouts, bright helicopter lights, and barking dogs.
