Bovine Blockage

Incoming from The Tall Accountant:

I turned into Upper Buitengracht St this morning in front of our building (in the CITY CENTRE) and had to drive around 2 cows!
I kid you not – photo on the way.

And here it is, with the cattle safely removed from the dangerous traffic flow.


It looks like Sheffield on a Friday night. But without the vomit and the fighting.
“Leave ‘im, Buttercup – ‘e’s not worth it!”

For those of you who don’t know where Upper Buitengracht Street is (let alone how to pronounce it), here’s a map showing you just how close this is to the actual centre of the city of Cape Town.


As The Tall Accountant says:

This tops the goat that was loose about a year ago.  

Absolutely. And that thing with those chickens.

  1. It’s actually not that unusual to see live stock roaming the streets of Tamboerskloof. Everybody knows Cape Town is a dorp! I actually had to brake quite hard one morning at 4 am, so that a black potbellied pig can saunter over the road. All the roaming farm animals escape from the farm on Millitary Road. So handy including a map. There must be some Virgo in you!
