Crews rescue cows from slurry pit

Holly Bush, Horningsham.


We were called at 17:47 with a request to support Dorset & Wiltshire Fire & Rescue Service with reports of five cows stuck in a slurry pit.
Firefighters from Bath and Bedminster supported Warminster colleagues as they responded to the incident. Crews used inflatable walkways, animal rescue kit and mechanical farm vehicles to rescue the cows from the slurry pit.
A rather smelly job for all firefighters, cows and farmers involved. Thankfully teamwork ensured a successful rescue of all five cows.
