Udderly muddy rescue in Chepstow

After getting stuck in thick mud on the river embankment, poor Sally the cow needed rescuing by South Wales Fire and Rescue Service crews!

Last night (9 May 2022), crews from Chepstow and Bridgend Fire and Rescue Stations attended the scene of a large animal rescue on Newhouse Farm Industrial Estate in Chepstow.

Utilising What 3 Words, crews located bull-loved Sally on the embankment and worked tirelessly into the night to free her.

This was a challenging rescue for our crews, requiring strategic planning and specialist equipment, but we’re please to announce that Sally is now safe and has been returned to the herd.
