Cow Trapped for Days Below Street

A cow apparently wandered into a culvert in Kaysville, Utah and squeezed through the town’s storm drain system until she became stuck where the drain narrowed just enough. Animal Control officers officers were alerted when a couple heard noises and found a full-grown cow in a street drain.
Holden Holt and his wife told FOX 13 they found the cow stuck the drain while walking Thursday morning.

"We heard a noise in the storm drain and my wife went over and looked and there was a head with some eyes poking out. It was a little frightening," Holt said.

Animal Control staff tried in vain to chase the cow out the way she came in. Finally a crew had to dig up part of the street, and a tractor was used to pulled the cow out. Officers said she was underground for at least five days. The cow, covered with bruises and scratches, was returned to the farm and reunited with her calf. Link -via Fortean Times

That was pretty decent of them. Less compassionate people would have sedated the cow and then taken a chainsaw to her just to save the several thousand dollars it will cost to repair the road.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
