BRISTOL, England — Four cows that escaped from their pastures and wandered onto active railroad tracks delayed a Great Western Railway train traveling between Bristol Temple Meads and Taunton this Monday, the Somerset Live reports.

"We will get them to moove as soon as possible," the Great Western Railway said through their Twitter account. "Sorry for the delay."

The incident took place at the height of rush hour, while the trains were filled with employees traveling home from work. Many took to social media to vent their frustrations.

"Trains are delayed. Kamikaze cows everywhere," tweeted passenger Aimee Ramsey, "It's not so funny when you have to be in work! It's a real life Country File here."

The Somerset Live did not report how long it took to relocate the cows.
