Kinsale crew rescue a Ghost

Earlier this month, Kinsale RNLI went to rescue a cow – called Ghost – who had fallen from a field. 

The crew were helped by farmer Brian Hayes, who donned a lifejacket to join in the rescue effort. Watch the moo-ving rescue here:

This is the second animal rescue for the Kinsale crew this year. In February, they assisted a horse that had become trapped in oyster trestles.

If you see an animal in difficulty in the water, please don't go in after it. Instead, call 999 or 112 and ask for the coastguard.
