Firefighters took on a beefy challenge when they rescued a bull stranded waist-deep in a ditch next to a field off Sandtoft Road, Thorne, on Thursday afternoon.
They worked with the farmer to create a ramp, then used animal rescue gear to usher the beast to safety. Sandtoft Road was closed while the bull was moved to a secure field.
Station manager Shayne Tottie said: “The animal was quite calm to begin with, but became more distressed as the rescue went on. Luckily, it responded to our efforts to get it to safety.”
