  Silly moo's pool plunge
Updated 05 July 2002, 13.16
Wales News
This is the story of a brave cow named Masie wanting a drink.

Most cows in her situation would head over to the herd's water trough.

But Maisie decided to follow her nose and it led her to a back garden swimming pool.

Making a splash

The pool's owner had only moved into the house two weeks before and no one had warned her that the local herd might fancy a dip.

For Masie, getting into the pool was a lot easier than getting out.

Wales News
A harness was used to pull Masie out

Farmer to the rescue!

Fortunately, Masie's owner, farmer James Bassett, was soon on the scene to rescue his drippy bovine.

Mr Bassett eventually used a harness attached to his tractor to lift the soggy milkmaker out of the water.

Poor Masie is udderly ashamed of her accident.
