According to the Pennsylvania State Police, a cow and bull pair that stopped to "have relations" at the intersection of Routes 28/66 and Route 85 in Rayburn, near Kittanning, in Western Pennsylvania, caused a traffic jam on Friday morning.
Post-Gazette reports the bull resisted attempts to interrupt the "relations" and the police were forced to call Pennsylvania Farm Bureau personnel.
Fox 8 reports that the officials finally managed to "coax" the animals into custody. According to The Morning Call, Trooper John Corna told the Associated Press that Farm Bureau personnel finally resolved the problem around 9:15 a.m. when they shooed the pair into a trailer.
The Morning Call reports that the intersection of Routes 28 and 85 in Rayburn Township was busier than usual because of ongoing construction, but the slow traffic was further hampered when the bovines refused to budge. Corna said troopers "kept trying to shoo them off the highway, but that just got the bull mad and it started to escalate."
According to Corna, the "relations" took place "right in the construction zone" and made "a big [traffic] mess out there."
Farm Bureau personnel are keeping the animals at a nearby farm until their owner is identified.
According to Fox 8, the incident comes after a pig ran loose on a Pittsburgh highway.
