Cow Stuck in Pool

A cow which escaped from its farm in Motcombe, near Shaftesbury managed to get stuck in a swimming pool.

Fire and rescue crews were called the scene after the cow fell into an outdoor pool in the grounds of a nearby cottage on Tuesday morning.

They teamed up with an animal rescue group from Poole, specialist rescue teams, a vet and the cow's owner to haul it out of the pool.

A harness was put around the cow and a hydraulic vehicle from the farm was used to lift it out, after it had been sedated by the vet. Two hours later and the rescue was a success, with the cow being hoisted safely onto dry land.
