Yesterday afternoon just before 4:00, SWFE responded at the request of ICSO to a cow stuck in the mud off of Maxwelton Rd. Our crews spent several hours working with members of the public to extricate the cow from her predicament, where she had been stuck at least since early morning. We were able to dig down and get a strap under her chest, and then using a neighbor’s tractor and some sheets of plywood, pull her out of the mud onto solid ground. A large animal veterinarian arrived to assess the cow, and administer some IV fluids, which really perked her up. When we left the scene around 8:00 last night, she was up on her chest and munching hay.
