Police officers wrangled a herd of cows from someone's lawn in an Ontario town
Ontario Provincial Police issued a warning for a very unusual traffic hazard this morning after a herd of cows escaped from their pasture and ran amok in a quiet neighbourhood in Russell, Ont.
At around 8:30 Wednesday morning, OPP East Region tweeted out a photo of an officer cautiously watching over the group of seven bovine rabble-rousers, who can be seen congregating on someone's lawn in Russell, just 45 minutes outside of Ottawa.

Based on the post, it seems that the cows didn't manage to do any damage or sustain any injuries, and their keeper was successfully contacted to come and retrieve the errant crew.
Twitter users definitely had a hoot with the quirky news piece, speculating that the group may have been taking part in a peaceful protest, completing some local milk deliveries, or just embarking on a little adventure.
