A wild boar disrupted rail services for several hours in North Lanarkshire.
The “brute” was spotted by the train line at Wishaw, where services travel between Glasgow Central and Larkhall, shortly after 7.30pm on Thursday.
It was initially identified as a pig with police and Network Rail teams trying to catch the “beast”.
ScotRail tweeted: “There’s a pig (yes, you read that right) on the line at Wishaw.
“Police and @NetworkRailSCOT are trying to capture it right now, so our Glasgow Central – Lanark services won’t be calling at Wishaw for the moment.”
The account later clarified they had been “advised that the beast involved is in fact a wild boar”.
Hours later it posted: “The wild boar is now safely off the railway and our trains are now able to stop at Wishaw again.”
