PICTURE: Cow Rescued After Falling Off Cliff in Waterford Yesterday
It might sound udderly crazy. Some might even say it’s a load of bull. But a cow has been rescued after falling off a cliff in Dunmore East, County Waterford.
The animal apparently fell off a cliff near Creadan Head in the Waterford Estuary, two miles north of the town, yesterday.
According to their website, Dunmore East RNLI mooved swiftly, just before 4.00pm, at the request of the Irish Coast Guard.
They had received a report that a small boat, with three people onboard, was in difficulty but it turns out that they weren’t in trouble but were merely trying to rescue the cow that had become stranded.
Dunmore East RNLI Deputy Coxswain Ray Power said: “As a lifeboat crew we never know what we might be facing each time we are called, but in this case thankfully the actual call was not as serious as we first thought, but we were glad we could help all the same and bring the cow to safety.”
