Animal and complex operation on Tuesday morning in the canton of Bern in Switzerland: A cow fell into a sewage hole, writes "Schutz und Salvation Bern" on Facebook. The professional fire brigade is on site together with the local fire brigade.
A crane is needed to free the animal from its predicament. A picture of the deployment shows straps and a net stretched around his body, which in turn has a hook attached. An animal lifting net is required to secure the cattle, reports the "Tagesanzeiger". The rescue workers were equipped with a special suit and breathing apparatus. That was required in the vicinity of a cesspool.
The little one already has a name. It's called Kevin - like his rescuer. "Of course we're very happy about that," quotes the "Tagesanzeiger" from a spokeswoman for "Schutz und Salvation Bern". Both the new suckler cow and Kevin are doing well.
The participation in the mission and the birth of the little one is great. The images from the mission triggered a number of reactions and comments on social media. Thank you to the fire department for your hard work. One says: "I recommend a shower with lots of soap - for everyone involved!"
