ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - A roundup of dozens of loose cattle in Aberdeen is stretching into a second day.

Brown County Emergency Management director Scott Meints says about 45 cows got away from a livestock auction on Wednesday. The American News reports (https://bit.ly/1QHIjim ) that at least 20 of the animals remained loose overnight.

Hub City Livestock co-owner Rick Hellwig says the cows got loose because a gate on a pen was not chained securely.

The city issued a safety alert Wednesday afternoon to warn people to stay away from the cattle.
