A young bullock who fell into a swimming pool after making his escape from a field has been winched to safety by firefighters.

The 600kg farm animal was hoisted out using a harness after spending around four hours in his watery predicament in Paignton, South Devon.

Rob Cude, group manager at Devon and Somerset Fire and Rescue Service, said: “He did spend quite some time with his nose just below the surface blowing bubbles, which he seemed to enjoy.”

“When they started pumping out the water, he seemed to swim along the pool and investigate the pump,” he added.

“All (were) relieved to see him safe and well.”

Once the bullock had been lifted out of the pool and released from his harness, he was moved into a cattle trailer and taken back to the local farm to recover from his dip.

“A really good outcome for one very cold young bullock,” Mr Cude added.
