Milk truck strikes, kills 2 cows in southern Wis.

CLARNO, Wis. (AP) -

Authorities in southern Wisconsin say a man driving a milk truck collided with and killed two cows that had wandered onto a road.

The Green County sheriff's office says the 26-year-old man was driving in the Town of Clarno on Thursday evening when he came across a number of cows in the road.

The driver told authorities he braked and swerved but couldn't avoid hitting two cows.

Deputies say the milk truck sustained moderate front-end damage. A WISC-TV report (http://bit.ly/TTfT4x ) says the owner of the cows was contacted to remove the animals.
