A cow took refuge on the fifth floor of an apartment block in Irkutsk region 'seeking to escape the loving advances of a young bull'.

The terrified cow ran from a field in Lesogorsk after the amorous bull started harassing it, said witnesses. 

The creature climbed all the way up fives flights of stairs while the determined bull stood guard over the entrance to the block. 

'The bull did not follow it upstairs, but waited by the building's entrance, adding to the cow's confusion,'' explained a report by news agency RIA Novosti.

'Rescuers had to drag the mooing animal down by tying a rope to its horns and forcing it to descend.'

Locals said they 'had to struggle to keep the agitated bull away during the operation'.

'It remained immediately unclear whether the bull managed to achieve its objective after the cow left the building', said the report.
