Brisbane motorists can expect lengthy delays on a major arterial road where stray cows have caused traffic chaos.
A truck rolled on the Gateway Motorway about 7pm (AEST) on Thursday before catching fire.
Several disoriented cows from its load wandered across the Gateway Bridge to the toll booths, police said in a statement.
The driver escaped the wreckage uninjured, but so far 13 cows have died.
...."The cattle have obviously run off in fright into surrounding scrub.
"Also there's a lot of creekways around that road and they've gone into those low-lying areas.
"Our inspector is out on the job as we speak. He's been out all night and he's trying to locate all those cattle and get them onto a truck."
Have the families of the dead cows been notified? Hands up anyone that wants the rounding-up-cattle-inspector job
