Cow trapped under street for days? Pull the udder one

A cow was stuck below street level for days in Kaysville, Utah, after falling into a storm drain. The cow became stuck under the street after crawling further underneath it. She was only found when a man passing a drain heard strange noises. When attempts by construction workers and animal rescuers to pull the cow out with ropes failed, they dug a large hole and hoisted the cow out using a tractor. Animal rescue workers estimate she could have been trapped for up to a week. She has now been returned to pasture.
