DE PERE (NBC 26) — We have learned several cattle were inside the semi truck trailer that rolled Tuesday morning in Brown County.

According to the De Pere Fire Department Batallion Chief, the driver was hauling 32 head of cattle and 28 of them survived the crash.

Authorities say they had to cut a hole in the roof of the semi trailer to free some of the livestock and get them moved to another trailer.

Once crews were able to get the cattle moved, they then worked tirelessly during the snowy conditions to get the semi and trailer moved upright and towed away.

The incident blocked all northbound traffic for several hours Tuesday, and people had to be diverted at Scheuring Road in De Pere while crews worked to remove the semi and trailer.

Please stay with NBC 26 as we work to learn whether any tickets were issued.
