Recently, a video was posted on social media showing a cow trapped in a sinkhole and how it was rescued. According to reports, the sinkhole was not noticed by the farmers until the cow fell into it.
As per reports, the cow fell into the hole while grazing the grass and the rescue operation began as soon as it was noticed. The incident took place in Auckland, at Witton Castle Country Park, UK. Reportedly, the sinkhole was made and later not covered by the workers, which led the cow to fall into the sinkhole.
The video was posted by Witton Castle Country Park, and it was seen that the staff members along with the local farmers came to save the cow. It was seen that there were almost four men who rescued the cow from the sinkhole with the help of a tractor.
The cow was rescued with the help of strapping ropes that were attached to its hind legs. The rescuers took proper measures to not harm the cow and rescue it safely. As per reports, the sinkhole was small in size but deep as a hole.
The reports added that the farmers didn’t notice the cow had fallen into the sinkhole. Later, when they felt that a cow was missing, they noticed that his pals had crowded at a place. As they visited, they saw that the cow had fallen into the sinkhole.
The rescue operation took place for a long time, but the cow was rescued without getting hurt. The team immediately removed the straps from its legs and the bovine returned with its pals. The video was shared by Witton Country Park, stating, “The Bullock fell into some sort of sinkhole, which nobody knew, but is now absolutely fine and is back with its pals.”
The video soon went viral and received almost 2.6 million views and 2,600 comments. One of the users said, “Wow, great job. I’m surprised that it didn’t hurt the cow.” Another user wrote, “Brilliant job; it’s a pleasing and good outcome.” Someone also wrote, “Amazing!” Great job, boys! Teamwork.”
