    Feb. 25 (UPI) — Firefighters in Britain rescued a cow that wandered into a deep slurry pond and sank up to its neck.

    Firefighters said the cow was in danger of drowning in the slurry, which was composed of water and cow manure for fertilizer.

    Photos shared by the Lutterworth Station show rescuers venturing out onto the pond using an inflatable raft. The firefighters used ropes to guide the bovine back to dry land.

    “An excellent example of teamwork and specialist training in action,” the post said.
