A cow was re-mooved from a tree by firefighters after the animal got stuck in a tight spot.


UK: A crew from Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue joked the incident was “udderly ridiculous”, after they spent over an hour trying to free the cow.

The animal’s head got stuck in a tree on Chilbolton Common in Hampshire on Wednesday evening.

The fire service was called at about 7.40 pm and worked with an animal rescue adviser to cut the tree and free the cow – but it took three hours.

Firefighters had to “re-moove” a cow's head from a tree after it got stuck. A crew from the Hampshire and Isle of Wight Fire and Rescue Service (HIWFRS) spent more than an hour trying to free a cow, which got its head stuck in a tree on Chilbolton Common, Hampshire, on Wednesday evening. Issue date: Friday, September 2, 2022.


The cow was stuck in the tree for several hours

Mark Compton, who is the fire service’s animal rescue tactical adviser, said: “The animal rescue crew from Winchester worked to release the cow by enlarging the hole and manipulating the animal’s head until it was free from the tree.”

Seeing the punny side, the fire service said on Twitter: “The crew worked to re-moove the animal from the willow tree.”

Two photos of the animal were shared by the fire service and showed front and rear views of the trapped cow. In one picture, the cow looked pretty disappointed with herself.
