Un-textbook гeѕсᴜe: Pregnant cow had her һeаd ѕtᴜсk in a World wаг II-eга pillbox for 4 hours before being rescued by the fігe department

This is the moment a pregnant cow got her head stuck – in a Second World War pillbox.

But don’t worry, the Lincolnshire Red, who is due in February next year, has been rescued and is now doing fine.

The cow got stuck in the window of the pillbox yesterday morning and is believed to have been trapped for around four hours after the stone causing swelling around her neck.

A vet was able to sedate her at Gibraltar Nature Reserve in Skegness, Lincolnshire and a search and rescue team arrived to help after receiving reports of the trapped animal.

Firefighters and the Urban Search and Rescue Team were called to the scene and the cow was sedated by a vet so that heavy breaking equipment could be used to knock away the window.

A Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue spokesperson said: ‘The cow became stuck in the window opening of this wartime pillbox at 10.30am.

‘A vet attended and sedated the cow then we set it free using heavy breaking equipment.

‘We left the scene at 5.30pm. The cow is OK and now walking round. She is pregnant and expecting around February time, so fingers crossed all is OK.’

The team chipped away six inches around the stone window of the pillbox, causing minor damage.

Spencer Creek, Technical Rescue Manager for Lincolnshire Fire and Rescue, added: ‘Compared to fighting fires this may seem a little bit strange, but because of the county’s rural nature animals do occasionally get into danger.

‘Normally when this does happen they have become stuck in mud or water, so this was a bit different. With the cow trapped in the stone window it was actually causing swelling around its neck, so it was important we had the vet there to calm the animal so it wasn’t in distress and the skills of the Urban Search and Rescue Team.

‘We will get involved in animal rescues if the incident is a medical emergency like this one, if it is physically trapped or if a member of the public has got into danger attempting a rescue themselves. In other instances, and for smaller animals, please call the RSPCA.’
