Police in the canton of Graubünden were called to the scene after the bull was spotted on the tracks by a passer-by, said news agency ATS.
Unable to capture the animal – which stood at the side of the tracks as several trains went past – police called on a local farmer for help.
Bringing his herd of cows to the scene, he was able to entice the bull to join the females before steering the herd, including its new member, away from the tracks.
It’s the second time in a few weeks that Chur police have had to deal with a bull on the railway line, said ATS, after an incident in late March when a bull was pursued across the Rhine river before being caught.
