Cypress County officials indicated a cattle liner with up to 100 livestock rolled over on Range Road 52 and Township Road 120 on April 26.

Officials say at least one handful of cattle had to be put down at the scene of the accident.

RCMP say they were called to the scene of a single-vehicle rollover along Range Road 52 after 7 a.m. and remained at the scene for several hours as crews worked to clear the highway.

Cypress County officials said the highway reopened following a seven-hour closure, however deceased cattle still remained in the area and they advised motorists to drive safely.
