This is the moment a man on the run from police was chased into the arms of officers - by a herd of COWS.

The suspect had fled the scene of an alleged crime and cops were working to track him down.

The National Police Air Service (NPAS) then captured the animals rounding him up and removing him from their field in Devon, England.

A police helicopter recorded the moment the man appears to be marched off the field by the bovines.

A spokesperson for NPAS said. “Watch the moment a man on the run from Devon and Cornwall Police was herded up by a group of cows in Devon and mooved out of their field into the arms of waiting Police Officers - however we did have to remind the cows not to take the law into their own hoofs.

"It was a high steaks incident - he was told to stop running but it clearly went in one ear and out the udder - great team effort as always."

A fellow police officer tweeted: "Trying to escape?? How dairy…."

Another wrote: "This is terrifying, his life was at steak! …………..I’ll get my coat."

In response, one person said: "Meanwhile Sir Loin later gave interview on how his fellow cows rounded up the suspect."

Another penned: “They should be udderly proud of their action.”
