A cow along a Chattanooga interstate slowed traffic Tuesday morning.

Dispatchers received reports of the cow grazing on the median at mile marker 13 on Interstate 75.

As drivers slowed to watch, dispatchers watched over the TDOT SmartWay cameras. These still frames were taken from the SmartWay system that captured the event.

The cow, which escaped from a nearby property, was returned to its owner. TDOT and Chattanooga Police provided traffic control so the owner could retrieve the cow.
