A Moo-oo-ving experience!

CNN reporter Deborah Feyerick was on location covering a story assignment about farming in St. Albans, Vermont.

Little did she know that she was going to be part of the big scoop.

When Feyerick and production crew initially arrived on the scene, the owner of the farm proceeded to take the crew on a tour of the grounds, when all of a sudden they came upon one of his cows that was attempting to give birth.

The farmer immediately recognized that the cow was having a difficult time pushing the calf out, so he did what he always does when one of his cows has this problem; he assisted and allowed Feverick to lend a helping “pull” using a set of chains attached to the stubborn little calf.

It was lucky for cow, calf and farmer that the news crew had been present otherwise the farmer may not have been able to extract the calf, and most likely both cow and calf would have died.

All I can say is “OUCH,” but well done indeed (IMHO.)

Oh, and by the way, cow, calf, farmer and reporter are all doing well!
