CENTERVILLE — Seven cattle began roaming southern Centerville Saturday evening after escaping a trailer hauling them southbound on highway 5.

The call came in around 4 p.m. Saturday. They were rounding up the last few around 5:30 p.m.

Deputies from the Appanoose County Sheriff's Department, officers from the Centerville Police Department and an officer from the Iowa State Patrol assisted in the effort.

Four cattle were rounded up into the fenced-in basketball courts at the corner of 21st and East Cottage streets. Three others were also eventually ushered into the cattle trailer.

Scanner traffic indicated that one of the cattle was injured.
