Large Ox Rescued From 4 Feet Deep Trench

It is always heart-warming to hear about animal rescues. One just happened yesterday morning at Sao Pedro. An adult ox had fallen into a 4 feet deep trench that was dug to install underground cables near St Peter’s Church. It was lying on its back with its hooves facing upwards.

At 7:45 in the morning, firefighters and emergency services staff were alerted. They hastily reached the site. The poor ox was crying but it couldn’t move. The rescuers were in a fix as they couldn’t use any machinery because it could harm the bovine. The trench was less than a metre wide and so they manually had to make it broader. Crowbars and a pickaxe were used as part of the rescue.

We tied a rope to its horns and stomach and rescued it from the trench,” said duty officer Amit V Rivonkar, who was in charge of the rescue. The ox who looked like it was almost dead, happily ran away after being given a new lease on life. This brought great joy to all the rescuers.
