A small herd of cows somehow got loose and wandered into a residential Pico-Rivera neighborhood Tuesday night.

About 7:35 p.m., officials received reports of about 20 cows at Beverly Road and Durfee Avenue, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Deputy Tracy Koerner.

Media footage showed the cows calmly gathering about 9 p.m. in a cul-de-sac.

At one point during the night, Koerner said, the cows began to charge and one was fatally shot by law enforcement. He said he didn’t know what or whom they had been charging at.

Koerner said that deputies were attempting to keep the cows together and that the department’s mounted enforcement detail had been called to try to load the cows onto a horse trailer.

“Deputies are holding position in front, keeping the animals contained,” he said.

Koerner said he could not provide information yet as to where the cows had escaped from.
