Cow Submerged Up to Neck in Mud Rescued in Victoria

Fire and emergency personnel in Kyneton, Victoria, rescued a cow that was submerged up to its neck in mud on September 29, according to footage from the Country Fire Authority (CFA).

The CFA said they were called to a property on Greenway Lane in Kyneton at around noon.

“A local vet was called to the scene to sedate the cow so crews could safely dig around it and fit a sling underneath the cow,” the CFA said. “The cow was pulled from the mud and moved to safety on firmer ground.”

This footage shows the animal being pulled from the mud.

The cow was handed back into the care of its owner at 3:30 pm, still under sedation. Credit: Country Fire Authority via Storyful
