A runaway cow wreaked havoc at an Indian airport on Friday.

The brave animal caused numerous flights to be diverted from Ahmedabad airport after it managed to sneak past security at a cargo gate and make its way on to the runway - sparking a 90-minute chase between the cow and ground staff - before it was finally moved away from the aircrafts and returned to safety.

A source told NewsAsia: "The cow had entered from near the cargo gate of the airport. The security personnel with sticks and air guns chased the animal away."

The AAI - the Airport Authority of India - have ordered an inquiry into the incident.

The said in a statement: "The AAI chairman has asked the Ahmedabad airport director to ascertain possibility of any human negligence in the incident. Directives have been given to take stringent steps to avoid any such occurrences in future."
