The RNLI has been called out to help a cow in distress in the water off Bundoran in Co. Donegal.

A passerby spotted the animal at Tullan Strand yesterday and alerted the coastguard.

A lifeboat and helicopter along with a number of volunteers attended the scene and got the animal back to shore.

 

Bundoran RNLI is advising people to contact them if they see an animal in distress, rather than putting themselves at risk.

Speaking on return to the lifeboat station, Bundoran RNLI Helm Michael Patton said,

‘We were delighted to see a successful outcome from today’s call out and would like to thank those who assisted in the rescue of the cow.

"If you are ever worried that your pet or animal is in danger, call 999 or 112 and ask for the Coast Guard, rather than putting yourself at risk by going into the water after them."
