Deputy rescues drowning 1,000-lb. bull

Deputy Rescues 1,000lb Drowning Bull

Riverview, FL -- She's a bull's best friend. A Florida sheriff's deputy hopped in a muddy pond to rescue a bull from drowning. A man mowing grass spotted the 20-year-old cow struggling in the water and called for help.

Deputy Christina Ammons arrived on the scene and immediately took off her holster and waded in.

For 45 minutes, Deputy Ammons held the drowning bovine's head above water, while her partner, armed with a rifle, kept a look out for alligators. Firefighters eventually arrived and used tow straps to pull the 1,000-lb. beast onto the shore.

Just when they thought they had him the bull tried to bolt back into the water.

Finally, 30 minutes later, the rescue team got the bull out of the water. Before long, he was up and walking around.

Check out the full rescue video here:

Yes! A bull is NOT a cow! I'm tired of these on line reports not getting it right. How can they expect the reading public to learn if THEY can't get it right. I imagine if the reporters can't get it right why should the reading public...

She was brave to get in that pond with possible alligators. I'm afraid I couldn't have done that.

You can judge a person's heart by the way they treat their animals. Well done thy good and faithful servant, well done Deputy Ammons!

wow a 20 year old bull and sweet as can be, looks so weak and thankful. I love the rescue man who was petting him and giving him reassurance , I would have done the same. I wish I seen the footage of him walking again . these animals need to be kept safe, looked like a terrible fall. of course there are the numbnuts below trying to make a joke , why do they bother talking BS.

You can be my wingman anytime Deputy.
