Corralling cattle

Belleville, ONT – Police officers spent the better part of five hours from July 9th into July 10th  in the area of Highway #2 and Mitchell Road after numerous complaints were received of large cattle roaming the highway nearly causing collisions with approaching motor vehicles. Police were able to steer the livestock back into the fields they were believed to have escaped from, only to learn that a faulty fence on the farm was to blame, and the cattle continued roaming back.  Police continued containment for public safety and for the safety of the animals. Unable to locate a contact person for the animals, police called on the assistance of Belleville Public Works who attended and constructed a makeshift barrier using 20 feet of snow fence and metal posts.  The animals were then safely contained to the field.  Police eventually made contact with the owner of the cattle.  An investigation is continuing.
