Firefighters have been hard at work, this time attempting to free a cow’s head that had been lodged in a tree.
On Wednesday evening, a crew from Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service (HIWFRS) spent more than an hour attempting to release a cow whose head became caught in a tree on Chilbolton Common in Hampshire.
Photos show the front and back of the stranded cow, who appears to be pondering the choices that led to the tra.ge.dy.
Crews were called at 7.40 p.m. and worked with an animal res.cue expert to cut down the tree and liberate the cow by 11 p.m. ‘Within Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire and Res.cue Service, we have specialized personnel trained in dealing with animal res.cues,’ said HIWFRS animal res.cue tactical consultant Mark Compton. The Winchester animal res.cue team tried to extricate the cow by expanding the hole and twisting the animal’s head until it was free of the tree.’ The fire department was quick to make some cow-related jokes on Twitter, characterizing the rescue as “udderly ludicrous.”
‘On Wednesday evening, the crew worked to re-moove the animal from the willow tree,’ it continued.
Cows have been recognized in the past for their strange behavior, and in 2014, a cow was photographed relaxing on a roof in Switzerland.
A surprised biker discovered the farm animal on the slick slate roof in Bern, Switzerland’s capital.
The cow ultimately found her way back to the grassy pastures, albeit des.troy.ing a few tiles in the process.
