TONGEN, China, June 23 (UPI) -- Chinese highway police shared video of a "bizarre" highway rescue involving a cow trapped on the outside of an elevated highway's concrete barrier.

Guizhou traffic police responded Sunday to the elevated highway in Tongen, where reports indicated there were two cows walking along the outside of the guard rail, and officers arrived to find one of the cows had fallen to its death.

Video recorded by police shows witnesses tied a rope around the second cow to prevent it from meeting the same fate as its comrade and the group of bystanders were eventually able to hoist the bovine over the railing to safety.

The rescue was described as "bizarre" by city officials, who cautioned locals to keep their cattle and poultry away from the elevated highway.
