Pico Rivera: Several cows that were believed to be from a nearby slaughterhouse, escaped and stampeded through a Pico Rivera neighborhood injuring at least one person who was transported to a local hospital in unknown condition. The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department advised the public around 8:35 p.m. Tuesday, June 22, 2021, to avoid the area of Beverly Road and Durfee Avenue. 

Around 9:25 p.m., the stampede had made its way to a cul-de-sac on Friendship Avenue where authorities barricaded the cows and attempted to corral them into a trailer. One cow was reportedly killed, but the cause was not immediately determined. It took around three hours for the LASD, along with help, to round up the cows.
