It’s not the first time cows have blocked major transport routes in Glasgow. Earlier this month a cow blocked the railway line between Milngavie and Glasgow.

Road Policing Scotland, who attended the scene, wrote on Twitter:”Officers from #GlasgowRP are assisting with this #bull which has managed to wander onto the #M8 near #J30.

“Despite calling its name on its tag it didn’t seem to acknowledge us and we’re awaiting the local farmer to assist.

“There may be delays as you pass for safety. #NoBullPlease“
