Cow jumps export ship, swims to freedom in wild rescue

By: Sean Dowling

We have the cow that jumped over the moon, what about the cow that jumped the ship!

Bet you've never seen a cow like this!

The animal basically turned into a triathlete after escaping or falling off a live exports ship, swimming through the water, and running through town before finally being captured, according to an Australian news site.

The cow was seen swimming in the ocean off Fremantle Port in Western Australia.

Fremantle Sea Rescue was on the case, with a GoPro in hand, as rescuers tried to steer the cow to move to the nearest beach.

The team is used to performing some blockbuster movie-style rescues, so a cow should be the least of their worries. Not quite.

They were able to corral the cow to the rocky shore, but before everyone knew it, the cow hit the high road. Mashable reports the cow was running wild along South Beach, and actually managed to hide from rangers for nearly 24 hours!

But a cow can't hide forever, it was rounded up more than 3 miles away from where it jumped ship.

Hopefully, it will be going back to the same one!
