The Franklin County Sheriff’s Office said that they received a call at about 1:30 a.m. that the bovine was struck and killed by a tractor-trailer along Interstate 71, near Hoover Road. The driver of the rig was not injured, 10TV News reported.
On Tuesday, Brian Lash, the calf’s owner, said that he purchased the calf from an auction. The bull escaped through an opening in a fence.
