Pregnant Cow Stuck in Mud Pit in Missouri, Saved With Backhoe

The cow was unharmed in the rescue.

A pregnant cow has been rescued with the help of a backhoe after she became stuck in mud in Missouri.

The animal got stuck when her owners thought she’d gone for a drink near a pond because it was hot out.

On Wednesday, when they realized that she hadn’t moved in a while, they went to check on her, according to reports.

They realized they couldn’t free the 1,300-pound animal on their own.

That’s when a neighbor with a backhoe and firefighters stepped in to help.

KMOV captured the rescue on camera.

The owners worried the cow would be injured, but after an hour and 20 minutes, the cow was hoisted out.

It wasn't long before she returned to her grazing as if nothing had happened.
