Calves rescued after falling into drainage system near Maidstone
Kent Fire and Rescue Service was called to reports of two calves stuck in an old drainage system hole on private land in Linton Hill, Linton near Maidstone. The cover over the hole gave way, plunging them 5ft underground. A fire engine and the animal rescue unit attended, and crews widened the hole with a breaker to allow room for a mechanical hoist to be lowered in. Straps were wrapped around the calves and they were lifted out one by one. They had on only minor grazes and were udderly thrilled to be reunited with their mother, who looked on throughout the rescue. She was over the moooon to have them back.
