A bewildered cow caught on the loose in western Sydney, Australia, prompted two emergency calls within 24 hours, keeping firemen busy. The Caddens Corner shopping center dispatched fire and emergency crews after the cow was sighted wandering the mall.
Firefighters and police were able to capture the animal and relocate it overnight to the Western Sydney University grounds in Werrington.
However, the cow could not avoid problems for very long.
A cow found wandering a mall in Australia had to be rescued a second time after becoming mired in dirt.
The cow had been left overnight at a university.
A second emergency call was placed for the animal after it was discovered entangled in muck up to its stomach in a campus dam.
Once more, firefighting crews, police, and campus security were dispatched to save the cow.
They created a homemade lasso from a 38mm fire hose by wrapping it around the cow’s neck and hauling her out of the mud.
After attempting to flee the mud, the cow was weary and unable to stand.
Concerned firefighters remained with her as she recovered, ensuring she would never again enter the dam.
Authorities continue to investigate the origin and owner of the cow as they attempt to return it to its home.
