It took several people and some heavy-duty equipment to rescue a cow that fell in a river in northeast Indiana. The cow was discovered in the Maumee River Monday afternoon near New Haven, just east of Fort Wayne.

Rescuers put a rope around the cow and used a tractor to pull her to safety.

Getting the cow out was difficult because the riverbank was wet and slippery.

The cow is now back home safe at a nearby farm.
