Bullock rescued from pool peril

By FWi staff

A SPECIALIST rope rescue team was called in after a bullock stumbled into a swimming pool at a Welsh home, reports the Daily Express.

The animal, which apparently thought the cover of the pool was dry land, was eventually removed at Mynydd Llan Farm, near Ysceifiog.

Rescuers rescued the floundering animal by constructing steps from breeze blocks and slinging a fire-hose harness around it.
