The animal was spotted on the line at Pollokshaws West, near Pollok Country Park, in Glasgow on Tuesday morning.
A Highland cow caused rush-hour delays to trains around Glasgow after escaping from a country park. Rail operator ScotRail initially tweeted about reports of a couple of Highland Cows on the railway line at Busby, in East Renfrewshire, at 8.48am on Tuesday. However, at least one of the animals, described as an absolute unit, was spotted on the tracks at Pollokshaws West, which is on the same line and near Pollok Country Park. In a series of tweets, ScotRail said: Weve had reports of a couple of Highland Cows on the railway line at #Busby. We think theyre on the run from Pollok Park Well get them moooooved as soon as we can. Thanks for your patience. Absolute unit spotted on the track at Pollokshaws West. Sorry if youre being delayed due to this. @NetworkRailScot track staff on their way to attempt to encourage these coos to mooove back to the park. Its not safe to attempt to pass the area at the moment. In this picture, you can see trains on both tracks are being held. We really appreciate your patience if youre on board either train or at a station waiting.
