[April 20, 2010]  KAYSVILLE, Utah (AP) -- Rescuers have freed a cow that spent several days trapped beneath a city street in Utah.

KSTU-TV Fox 13 reported Thursday that the cow was hoisted out of a storm drain in Kaysville after it was fitted in a harness connected to a tractor.

Animal control officers in Davis County believe the cow squeezed into the culvert several days ago and became trapped as it moved farther into the narrow storm drain system.

Holden Holt tells Fox 13 that he and his wife spotted the trapped cow Thursday morning on a walk.

Crews had to dig up part of a road before the cow was lifted out late Thursday afternoon. The cow appeared exhausted but alive.
