Cow in canal creates calamity for Collier County deputies


COLLIER COUNTY, Fla. – A cow is back on dry land following a nearly three hour long rescue effort to save it from a Collier County canal.

Deputies arrived in the area of 30th Avenue S.E. off Everglades Boulevard after reports of a cow stuck in the water.

The animal was showing clear signs of exhaustion after after numerous attempts to free itself. Deputies were able to secure a rope around its neck and approached the cow in the chest-deep water.

With the assistance of two citizens, rescuers were able to push and pull the cow for approximately 50 yards to bring the animal to the end of the canal.

The Collier County Sheriff’s Agriculture Bureau then strapped the cow onto a rescue glide, where it was pulled out of the canal over the rocky bank. Once back on dry land, she was then loaded into a trailer and sent on her way.

The cow’s owner was contacted and was able to be re-united with his lost cattle.
