JAMESTOWN, N.D. (AP) — A semitrailer accident near Jamestown over the weekend killed eight cattle.

The North Dakota Highway Patrol says they were among 39 cattle that were being hauled from Montana to Minnesota when the crash happened on Interstate 94 about 5:30 a.m. Sunday.

The semitrailer tipped onto its side in the median. Eight of the animals either died or were euthanized. The others wandered away, and law enforcement officers teamed up with local residents to round them up.
