POLICE officers had to use their "cowboy skills" to help a herd of cows move on to new pastures.

Malvern Cops said the herd were taken back to where they belong after blocking a road near the town on Wednesday (March 6).

Taking to the police's X account, they said: "Some good old cowboy skills came in hand yesterday morning, a large number of cattle moooooooved to pastures new, to find the sweetest of grass to chew, they didn't 'milk it' for too long & were herded back to where they belong.

"Thanks to those who helped."
