Wayward bull takes a stroll on New Jersey interstate

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, New Jersey (WABC) -- It took cowboys with lassos to clear up a traffic problem on a New Jersey interstate.

A wayward bull decided to take a stroll along Interstate 195 on Sunday morning in Hamilton Township in Mercer County.

State Police troopers slowed down traffic while civilians armed with lassos corralled the bull and returned it safely to its owner.

However, the New Jersey State Police said on its Facebook page that the bull is the lead suspect in a string of graffiti incidents, and is accused of spray painting 'Eat More Chikin' on area billboards.
