Good Moos! Cow Survives 60-Ft. Fall Into Quarry


It was all for a tasty patch of grass. A 2-year-old hungry Holstein cow who resides at a farm in Haughton, England, was reaching for a bit of the green stuff when the ground gave way and it fell a whopping 60 feet into an unused scrap metal pit, according to the The Shropshire Star. Rescue crews from four nearby towns worked to save the animal — who has since been named “Lucky” — for three hours using a farm tractor to pull it to safety after it was sedated. Cows like Lucky typically weigh about 1,500 lbs.

“It was remarkable that it was not hurt when it fell from such a high height,” incident commander Paul Corfield told the newspaper. “The operation was particularly precarious because the cow was pretty lively and your first priority is to safeguard the crew.”

Amazingly, veterinarian John Pinder said that Lucky will make a full recovery. Phew, that’s good moos!
