The M6 had to be closed on Tuesday nights after ‘idiots’ allowed a cow to wander onto the motorway.
Police and farmers then had to join forces to help corral the animal off the road in Staffordshire and end her ‘exciting night out’.
A group were accused of ‘forcing and leaving a farmer’s gate open’ before motorway had to be closed, causing local delays.
The Central Motorway Police Group (CMPG), which covers the Staffordshire and West Midlands Police force areas, said the cow found itself on the M6 near Doxey.
It added that officers managed to coax the cow off the road before Highways England officials and a group of local farmers stepped in to ensure ‘she was safely walked off the network and back home after an exciting night out’.
The CMPG said: ‘Many thanks to the drivers held up as we shut the carriageway.
‘Your patience as we deal with these and other incidents is greatly appreciated.’

In a tweet at 11.55pm, it added: ‘Unusual moooooovements on the M6 Doxey after idiots forced and left a farmer’s gate open leaving this young cow to wander eventually onto the motorway.’
In a separate incident last night, the Birmingham Mail reported that Police have released a traffic camera image of a woman they say caused the M6 to be kept closed after she ‘wandered off’ while they were clearing debris between Spaghetti Junction (6) and Junction 7.
