Off for a paddle!

THREE cows obviously thought they could do with a cool down in the Stratford-on-Avon Canal.

CowsStratfordFirefighters turned out to rescue the three cows that had taken to the canal having a paddle between bridges 19 and 20, then decided they had had enough, Roger Fox reports.

Followed them

The firefighters followed them on the towpath then when they arrived at the bridge gave them a helping hand to get out and they were returned to their field near Hockley Heath.

The cows did not seem to be distressed paddling along the canal, but perhaps the Stratford Observer exaggerated a little when it mentioned they were in four feet of water near the bank!
