Firefighters were called to rescue a cow from a muddy bog in mid Powys.
The 600kg animal was found buried up to its neck in Llanwrtyd Wells.
Crews from Powys Command used lines, strops, shovels, airbags and "brute strength" to release the animal.
They confirmed it had been rescued successfully, and was later checked over by a local vet who confirmed the animal was "all good".
A tweet from the fire service added that crews were "now cleaning all the equipment".
