Maine farmer rescued after hide and seek with cow/calf pair


A Camden, Maine farmer that went out in the woods behind his property this week searching for his pregnant heifer, had to call the local authorities when he got lost himself.

According to Penobscot Bay Pilot, Ron Van Heeswijk called local police and firefighters after his mother-to-be wandered away from the pasture and into nearby woods on Monday night. The next day Van Heeswijk went out to search, but got turned around in the woods and was forced to call for help.

However, while Van Heeswijk was waiting for help he found the cow and her newborn calf she had delivered overnight.

The police cruiser siren helped guide Van Heeswijk out of the woods. A Knox County Sheriff’s Deputy carried the calf out of the woods and gave it a ride home, while others guided the mama back to the farm with a bucket of grain.
