Oklahoma is one of the few states in the United States that is a “fenced state”, meaning that livestock cannot roam freely. Texas is an open field state, where animals can generally wander without restriction. However, landowners in Oklahoma still have a responsibility to keep their livestock off of state and federal highways. Wandering cattle accidents are more common than many people think.
It is essential for landowners to take the necessary steps to make sure their animals are not straying onto public roads, as this can lead to serious accidents and injuries.
