South Yorkshire Police put out a warning urging Brits to remember to close gates and keep livestock safe.
The force said: ‘We’re not mooooooovie producers but the footage has a really important message… please keep your livestock secure and safe!
‘Last night one of our traffic officers was on his way to support our district officers with a fail to stop when he luckily was able to stop before hitting six loose cows in the road.
‘The outcome could have been very different for our officer and the cows if he had not been able to stop and react so quickly.
‘Please remember to shut all gates to your animals when leaving, ensure hedges and fencing is in good condition, secure gates with locks and use cattle grids where possible.’
