Joplin Police Chief Sloan Rowland tells News Talk KZRG exclusively that there were 109 head of cattle on board. Most of the cattle are now deceased or badly injured. A veterinarian is assisting the Highway Patrol.

Two cows are on the loose on the south side of I-44. One employee at AT&T said they saw one of the cows running through their parking lot.
