It "cud" have been worse.

British firefighters were moo-ved to post pictures of an unusual animal rescue online following requests from Twitter users.

North Yorkshire Fire said crews with specialist animal-rescue gear attended to a cow who had gotten its head stuck in a tree on Sunday.

After attempting to free the cow with farm machinery and hydraulic spreaders, crews used a saw and chainsaw to release the animal.

The fire department called it a "happy ending for all."
