Nothing to See Here, Just a Herd of Cattle on the Loose in Plano, Texas
I challenge you to show me something more Texas than this video.
A herd of cattle on the loose is the sort of thing you expect to see on a Farm to Market Road in Wilbarger County, not the big city. Ok, so Plano isn’t technically the big city, but it is a Dallas suburb, and it all kind of runs together.
For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out where the hell they came from. Admittedly, it’s been a while since I was last in Plano, but I don’t recall ever passing by a ranch while I was there. All I can recall is a sea of strip malls and ranch-style homes.
So, I decided to do some googling.
And that’s when I discovered that there are actually quite a few ranches in the area. Alrighty then. You learn something every day.
As the son of a cattle buyer, I grew up working cattle (keep in mind that I’m no cowboy, though. While working cattle is the main thing, that’s just part of being a cowboy). But, as someone with experience herding cattle, I have to say I was impressed with the Plano Police Department’s handling of the situation.
Even inside a vehicle, a herd of cattle on the move like that can be highly intimidating. Good on the police for stepping in and rounding them dogies up.
