PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A cow was rescued after being stick in a small stream with rising water, possibly over night.

A Clark County farmer found his cow stuck Thursday morning and was unable to rescue it himself, so he called the fire department.

The Clark County Fire and Rescue team worked for an hour but the cow was weak and unable to move. They fed the cow apples to help give it some strength, but ultimately called TLC Towing for a crane truck.

The crane truck was used to lift the cow out of the creek and to the barn where the crew worked to warm it up.
