This is the moment Turkish firefighters cut a tyre free from around a cow’s neck.
The incident was filmed near the city of Trabzon in the northern Turkish province of the same name after a passerby spotted the cow with a tyre wrapped around its neck and tried to remove it.
When the kindhearted passerby was unable to remove the tyre, they alerted the local authorities.
The local fire brigade arrived on the scene and firefighters had to cut the tyre off the cow with a hydraulic cutter.
After they safely freed the animal, the farmer, name not disclosed, thanked firefighters for their efforts.
In the footage, firefighters appear to be standing to the side of the cow as they use a hydraulic cutter to carefully remove the thick rubber around its neck.
The cow was reportedly fine after being freed from the tyre by the fire brigade.
It is unclear if it was an accident or deliberate, and if so who placed the tyre over the cow’s head.
Trabzon is a city on Turkey’s Black Sea coast that is located on the historical Silk Road, a trade gateway to Persia in the southeast and the Caucasus to the northeast.
