A stranded cow was rescued after getting stuck climbing over a crash barrier.

 Motorists driving on the road were warned by signs that cattle might be crossing but didn't expect to see one caught halfway over.

Jason Weigner nearly drove past the stricken cow near Chochis in Santa Cruz, Bolivia.

Weigner (31), said: "It seemed pretty resigned to the fact it was stuck and it probably was on for at least 10 to 15 minutes.

"It did not seem scared until I went over to help it as up to that point, it was pretty calm.

"When I went over to help it, it suddenly acted scared and tried to get off.

"It flailed around a bit before realising forward was not its only option and tried backing off the rail.

"Once it did that it was able to get free and tumbled down the hill behind the rail, before picking itself up and joining the rest of the herd."
