Cow euthanized after being struck by car in Round Hill

A cow had to be euthanized after it was struck by a car in Round Hill Sunday.

According to the Loudoun County Sheriff's Office, deputies responded to the intersection of Route 7 and E. Loudoun St. in Round Hill for reports that a vehicle struck a cow. The incident forced the ramp to be shut down for an extended period of time.

There were no injuries to the occupants of the vehicle.

The cow was euthanized at the scene.


JudiL, Raise the owners awareness of what, that sometimes Cows and other livestock break fences? newsflash, they know. welcome the Western end of the County. enjoy your visit.

We need to educate our cows to the fact that roads are dangerous - we need to institute a Cowarness Program to prevent this from happening again.  Put up signs on fences of every cow field (a cow circled with a line thru it).

Ugh, SterlingLocal.  You are not funny and this incident was not funny.  It was very unfortunate for the cow and the car driver. The loose cows have been a problem in our town because of the worry that this would happen. I am hoping this incident will raise the owner’s awareness that this is a huge issue not to be taken lightly.

this is an outrage! I can tell you that supporters of Cows rights will not stand for this offense! When will the day come when this disgraceful Cowism will end?
