Firefighters often come across the types of dangerous situations animals get into.
Recently a crew in McMinnville, Oregon assisted two teenagers and a homeowner in their efforts to save a 700 pound cow that fell into an in-ground pool.
Jeff Dyck who owns the male cow and property was able to lure the animal to the shallow portion of the pool. He also installed a makeshift wooden ramp inside.
Once firefighters arrived at the home, they attached straps around the cow’s body to form a leash, while Dyck held a bucket of oats. Together, the team of ten firefighters pulled the 700 pound cow, however he kept falling onto his side.
That’s when Dyck and his two sons went into pool to lift the animal into a standing position, making it easier for the crew to pull him out. From that point on, it only took about four minutes to get the cow safely out of the pool.
The animal was reportedly exhausted after all the tugging and excitement, however it was uninjured.
