'That's Not a Duck': Cows Wade to Safety Through New South Wales Flood

A herd of cows caught in a flooded field in Richmond, New South Wales, were able to swim and wade to safety on March 21, local man Michael Stojsic said.

Video by Box Hill resident Stojsic gives a close-up view of two cows wading in head-high floodwaters. Stojsic’s companion spots more cows in the distance.

Speaking to Storyful, Stojsic said all the cows safely emerged from the floodwater and found refuge in nearby fields.
