Lost Bull Semen Spill Shuts Down Interstate Ramp

Greyhound doesn’t just transport people across the continent: it transports cargo, too. Yesterday morning, strange canisters that smelled bad and gave off steam fell off a bus in Nashville, confusing emergency services. Were they bombs? Alien probes? No, containers of liquid nitrogen filled with bull semen bound for a cattle breeding facility in Texas.

This isn’t an unusual transport for Greyhound, as it turns out. What is unusual is that the canisters should go flying off the bus as it rounds a corner.
