It wasn't an accident or a tire changer that slowed traffic on a Massachusetts highway during rush hour: It was cows.
State police say they received a report at about 7:30 a.m. Monday of two cows in the eastbound lanes of Interstate 195 in Dartmouth.
Troopers called a local farmer, and cruisers slowed traffic as he loaded the bovines into a truck and removed them from the area by 8:30 a.m.
State police say they are usually called to help remove livestock from highways in the more rural western part of the state.
