MCDONOUGH, Ga., Sept. 17 (UPI) -- The Georgia Department of Transportation said a loose bovine causing traffic troubles at an interstate intersection has been caught after about six months.

Jill Goldberg, spokeswoman for the state Department of Transportation, said the animal, found to be a cow rather than the bull it was originally believed to be, wandered into a pen built to ensnare it Monday near the intersection of I-75 and I-675, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported Tuesday.

"We corralled it, then tranquilized it," Goldberg said.

The animal was first spotted wandering in the area about six months ago and DOT workers put a corral with water and food at a nearby maintenance facility in the hopes of ensnaring the bovine.

"It is on its way to somewhere better," Goldberg said.

She did not reveal the ultimate fate of the cow.
