It is nice to see human nature at work, a cow is often associated with food so lovely to see the effort men make to rescue a cow in difficulty.

That's a heartwarming rescue, but they could have gone about it somewhat better.

Putting the rope around the cow's neck strangles it and could have potentially even decapitated it due to its weight, even an "internal" one where the vertebrae separate. Also, for an animal of that size and weight, that's a relatively thin rope which would put a lot of pressure in a small area that could injure it.

I hope they covered that hole afterwards.

Guess they have to work with the tools they've got. The cow appeared doomed if not freedom so despite rope not being ideal cow was rescued.

Wonder if cow has any memory recollection of what happened? Recall seeing documentary of wildebeests drinking by a lake, crocodile gets one, has big struggle then releases the wildebeest, at which point wildebeest shakes itself down then starts drinking from the lake again. Is the desire for water greater than fear of crocs or did the incident just fade into the memory hole?
