This is what it looks like when Florida firefighters save a cow

Here is a story about a cow.

The breaking and urgent news came out of Florida on Friday morning: There was a cow in trouble in Hillsborough County (home of Tampa).

A cow in distress! Firefighters showed up and began working on rescuing said Florida cow:

Good news! The cow was successfully rescued:

Even better news: The cow (described as an “elderly cow,” because aww) should be okay!

Finally, because this story wasn’t enough on its own, it was capped off with this headline from Fox 13 in Tampa Bay. The headline is so perfect it should be dipped in bronze and preserved forever:

This concludes your report on Florida cows in distress.

UPDATE: I missed this one until someone pointed it out to me, but a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office spokesman also shared this bit of wonderfulness.
