SPECIALIST teams were called to rescue a cow from a drainage ditch in North Curry this afternoon.
An expert telehandler, who works as part of the Urban Search and Rescue which is based at Clyst St George, joined Taunton fire crews, along with a 4x4 from Bridgwater, to rescue an adult cow that had got stuck in a water drove, at 12.37pm.
Members of the Urban Search and Rescue team donned dry suits to enter the water and attach a harness to the cow, which was trapped in North Curry, at around 20 minutes’ drive outside Taunton.
The cow was then successfully freed using specialist equipment, confirmed at 3.37pm.
