Boulder County crews were able to rescue a cow that fell through the ice at a reservoir in Erie.
Mountain View Fire Rescue spokesman Rick Tillery said the cow fell through ice at Prince Reservoir No. 2 near 111th Street and Flatiron Meadows Boulevard in southwest Erie on Tuesday morning.
Tillery said the rancher was able to lasso the cow while rescuers worked to cut a channel in the ice to walk the cow to shallower waters and then get the cow safely up onto an ice shelf.
The rescue lasted from 10:45 a.m. to just before noon.
“They’re going to be monitoring (the cow) for the rest of the day to make sure it’s OK,” Tillery said.
Mountain View Fire, Lafayette Fire, Boulder Emergency Squad and the Boulder County Sheriff’s Office all responded to the call.
