SEATTLE —

The Washington State Patrol says a container loaded with cows fell off a tractor-trailer and onto Interstate 90 Saturday, killing at least some of the animals.

Trooper Julie Judson says it's unclear how many of the cows have died.

She says the tractor-trailer was heading eastbound on I-90 Saturday morning when its double-decker container full of about 30 cows tipped over on its side near south Seattle.

She says crews have righted the container, with the cows inside. The container has been moved to the shoulder, and arrangements are being made to move the animals.

The incident caused some traffic delays.
