Ohio St. gets livestock lesson from roaming cows 漫遊牛為俄亥俄州立大學上了一堂家畜課

Two cows got loose on the Ohio State University campus, leading some students to skip classes to watch a roundup that lasted more than 90 minutes.
Police say the pair of Belted Galloway cows got away Wednesday afternoon as their owner was trying to take them into the university’s veterinary medical center to have their hooves trimmed.
