While exploring abandoned nuclear missile silos in Kansas we came across a calf that had fallen in a hole fifteen feet deep. We didn’t know how long it was down there but it was still alive and we knew we couldn’t leave the site without saving it. We found another hole that a calf had fallen in, and the only thing left was bones. So we took action:
The cattle owner found a old piece of metal in the shape of a ladder and her son got ready to climb into the deep darkness where a scared calf shook in fear. The cattle owner was a old old woman who was as tuff as nails. Here she is dragging the ladder towards the hole.
The son got kicked in the balls by the calf a few times, but he eventually got the rope around it’s stomach and gave the signal for the old cattle owner to pull the little guy up. So up he went. I was so surprised in the strength of this old woman.
The calf ran like no tomorrow and only looked back at us once before disappearing into the wilderness to find it’s mother. It was amazing that it’s legs weren’t broken from the fifteen foot fall into the hole.
