Residents in southeastern Melbourne couldn’t believe their eyes on Wednesday evening after three cows escaped from a rolled-up trailer and took over local streets.

A rescue mission was immediately launched to retrieve the three heifers, who were very distressed.

An 80-year-old man was driving a Ford Falcon with a trailer attached at around 6:40 PM when he entered a roundabout on Glenfern Road in Ferntree Gully.

After a trailer rolled into a Melbourne suburb on Wednesday night, three cows soon roamed the local streets in Ferntree Gully (pictured)

The trailer suddenly rolled and released the heifers.

One of the cows ended up in a nearby backyard, while the other two ran into a parking lot of a Coles supermarket.

Victoria Police said the terrified animals were being charged against people who tried to contain them, according to 7news.com.au.

Within minutes, Fire Rescue Victoria, the SES, local vets, vet nurses, farmers and city guards were on hand to assist in the urgent rescue mission.

The heifers were sedated and then safely transported home.

Acting Senior Sergeant Melanie Woods of the Knox Police Department paid tribute to the local community who worked together to ensure the cows were found safely.

“Luckily no one was injured as the girls (cows) were quite upset,” she said in a statement.

“I want to say a big thank you to everyone involved, because without their help we wouldn’t have been able to get the heifers home safely.”
