Firefighters are, of course, so frequently summoned by anxious cow owners that it's almost proverbial:
Fire crews in Cumbria were surprised to receive a call to rescue the cow, which had toppled 10 meters down a slope of the river Leith before a tree broke its fall. [...]
The animal was sedated by a vet before being winched out of the tree by firemen using specialist equipment.
"(Fire crews) had to wear body armor in case a stray hoof lashed out at them," said a spokesman for Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service.
The cow emerged from the tree unharmed.
