Cow Takes A Dip

 

Updated : May 14, 2009

VeryHappyPig is often envious of swimmers when it’s hot out. When VHP is baking-not being cooked just warm- swimming is the first thing that comes to mind. Unfortunately just like pigs can’t fly we can’t swim either and we have to make do with rolling around in mud. However, a lack of swimming ability didn’t one of our farm yard cousin a cow from taking a dip in England recently.

An English couple rushed to their swimming pool after hearing a loud splash only to find that a cow had burst into their garden and taken the plunge.

The animal had broken through a hedge at Mark and Zoe Ryder's home in the village of Whaddon and dived in for a swim, tearing right through the pool cover.

Mr Ryder and two friends tried to coax her out of the water by lassoing a rope over her head and steering her towards the steps, reports the Daily Telegraph.

But when that failed, they called the fire brigade and the RSPCA - but as soon as rescuers arrived, the cow calmly climbed out of the pool of its own accord.

Mr Ryder, who runs a travel agency, was taking a shower when he heard the commotion and ran outside.

He said: "There she was, a cow staring at me from the shallow end. She had ripped through the cover and was standing waist-deep in the water.

"She started swimming down the pool to the deep end and went under the remaining cover. We were worried about her drowning so we ripped the cover off.

"She got spooked and tried to jump clean out of the pool but ended up half out and half in, where she stopped and fell asleep, as she was so exhausted."

David Braybrooke, an RSPCA inspector, checked the cow over but decided that she had not done herself any serious harm.

He added: "The RSPCA gets involved with all sorts of unusual calls for help, but this must be one of the oddest we've ever had to deal with."
