Cow Rescued from Swimming Pool in Harwinton

Bud Wilkinson

Harwinton volunteer firefighters responded to a rather unique call Sunday evening – a cow in a swimming pool.

The Harwinton Volunteer Fire Department said around 6 p.m. they were called to a home on Locust Road. The caller reported that a cow had wandered onto a swimming pool cover and fell through.

It took a heavy rope and about a dozen people to pull the animal out of the water, the department said. Once it was safely back on ground the cow began walking around and appeared uninjured.
