Indiana Farmer Saves Cow Calf by Jumping in Hot Tub



So it's cold out, you have a newly born baby cow stuck in a snowbank and it's close to dying...what's a farmer to do?

"Park the four wheeler right here, I got 'em was going to go in the house but...Heck no, in you go buddy! I jumped in fully dressed and held Leroy up so he didn't drown and he and I had a nice bath for an hour," Dean Gangwer told WRTV.

Dean Gangwer, an Indiana farmer, told our partners at WRTV he saved his calf Leroy by jumping into his hot tub.

Gangwer says he might've missed one of his cows wandering out alone and giving birth in the snow. By the time Gangwer found the calf, its body temperature was dangerously low.

But thanks to the farmer's quick thinking, a hot tub, and an electric blanket later on - little ol' Leroy was able to warm up enough to survive.

As for whether we can expect to see any more snaps of Leroy soaking in the hot tub, Gangwer says probably not.

"Leroy is officially done hot tubbing, some sunbathing is definitely in his future this summer in the grass but definitely hot tub days are done."

Guess if we are still jonesin' for more hilarious hot tub-ness, we'll have to look elsewhere.

Although unfortunately there aren't any cows that we know of in that.

Leroy isn't the only animal to love the water ... these animals can't wait to hang ten:

***EXCLUSIVE*** DEL MAR DOG BEACH, CA - UNDATED: AUGUST CALENDAR IMAGE: Gus is a 2 year old English Bulldog who was adopted in March 2011. He took his first surfing lesson in July 2011 at Del Mar Dog Beach and proved to be a natural. Gus is looking forward to next years surfing season. Rather than begging their owners for walkies these extreme dogs prefer to catch a wave as this barking mad charity calendar shows. The beach bum mutts were captured taking to the surf on dog-friendly beaches near San Diego in the US. All the surfing dogs have lifejackets and the calendars producer, Dina Demeo-Grover, confirmed that if the surf gets too much for them the pooches were free to hop off the board and swim back to shore. However, most were having so much fun posing on their surf boards they could not wait for another chance to ride a wave. All money raised from the calendar goes to a variety of charities, whose work includes animal rescue, childrens welfare and aid for senior citizens.
