When workers arrived at Lawton Meat Processing at 8 a.m., they noticed the longhorn wasn’t in his pen. They aren’t sure yet how he escaped.
The longhorn was spotted around 5 a.m. Wednesday morning on I-44 south of Lee. Animal Control attempted to capture the animal but he escaped on Railroad Street near Bishop Road.
