ABERDEEN (AP) - Officials in Aberdeen say about 40 cattle are loose and milling about town.

Brown County Emergency Management director Scott Meints tells the American News that the cows got away from a livestock auction.

City officials issued an alert Wednesday warning people to use caution if they see the cows. The livestock are primarily on the west side of town.

Meints says multiple agencies are working to keep both the cattle and the public safe, and keep the animals off roadways.
