BRISTOW, Okla. (AP) - Workers in Oklahoma are still trying to capture missing cattle that have been on the lam for hours since a truck carrying at least 75 cows overturned.

OHP spokesman Capt. Paul Timmons said it’s unclear how many bovines are still unaccounted for since the truck overturned around 4 a.m. Sunday morning and released as many as 40 animals. The truck overturned near a curve on state Highway 16.

Timmons says the highway has been fully reopened since the lingering runaways ventured off into the woods and away from vehicles. He says as many as four cows were killed in the crash but that no wrecks or human injuries were reported.

A private company has been called in to wrangle the remaining cattle.
