Highland Cow Had A Field Day When She Escaped From A Farm – ‘Weaving In And Out Of Cars’ In The Street

A Highland cow had a field day when she escaped from a farm and went trotting through the streets of a small village – before being rounded up at a petrol station.

Naughty bovine Hilary went for a wander at 9.20am on Monday, surprising commuters driving into work and bringing traffic to a standstill.

Night shift worker Gwen Gibson was returning home to East Whitburn, West Lothian, when she spotted Hilary and couldn’t resist snapping a few pictures.

Gwen, 46, said: “I was coming home from work and the traffic came to a halt.

“We didn’t know if it was traffic lights but I had a look and could see the cow coming over the hill.

“It caused a bit of a traffic jam, she was just weaving in and out the cars with not a care in the world.

“She ended up at nearby petrol station in Blackburn.

“It was hilarious.”

Free-spirited Hilary was eventually caught by Zoe Young, her owner’s daughter, who described Highland cows as ‘friendly and sociable animals’.

Gwen added: “It’s not everyday you’re driving along and a cow holds the traffic up.”
