In the clip dozens of cows can be seen weaving between vehicles as part of the bovine breakout. 

Moos could be heard reverberating as the animals hurtled past drivers' windows.

One puzzled man who recorded the encounter said from behind the camera: 'Why are the cows out?'

Recovery driver Joe Clift, 28, who was heading to a breakdown in Dover at the time, told KentOnline: 'I just thought "what the hell are these cows doing in the road", it's a weird thing to see at 5.30am.
