MCSO JOINS LOCAL CONSTRUCTION CREW TO SAVE COW STUCK IN A TIGHT SPOT
This cow found herself in a tight spot when she attempted to cross a dry canal that was so full of thick muck, she began to sink. Despite her best efforts to free herself she plunged deeper into the ground. It happened in a remote area near “Rabbit Run” off of 609 in Indiantown.
Fortunately, workers from Barnard Construction spotted the cow and called MCSO for help. It was clear the animal was in distress and was likely stuck for hours. When Lt. Danny Cunningham and Agricultural Detective John Barca arrived, the animal was up to her belly in mud and exhausted.
Lieutenant Cunningham and Detective Barca along with Ryan, Cordell, Kyle, and Ricardo from Barnard Construction worked together to harness the cow. They were able to pull the animal to the bank and move it to solid ground.
The cow is worn out, but uninjured. It is likely the cow would have been attacked and killed by coyotes or gators throughout the night had the workers not spotted her.
