WHITLEY COUNTY, Ky. (WYMT) - It looked like a scene out of the wild west this weekend in Whitley County.

Two sheriff’s deputies were dispatched to Highway 92E on Sunday morning after a call came in of two cows wandering the road.

Using some quick thinking, and their cruisers, the deputies were able to herd the cattle into a nearby fenced-in area until the owners could be notified about the escape.

In a Facebook post, the two deputies jokingly said they are trying to get the sheriff to allow cowboy hats to be added to their standard uniforms.
