Sept. 13 (UPI) -- A steer that fell down a sinkhole in England was hoisted the safety backside-first with the use of some heavy equipment.

Witton Castle Country Park in Bishop Auckland, County Durham, said staff worked together with a local farmer when the steer was found to have fallen into a deep sinkhole.


The rescuers attached straps to the bovine's rear legs and it was hoisted out of the hole backside-first.

The park said in a Facebook post that the steer is "now absolutely fine in the field with his pals."
