A cow had to be rescued after it was found wandering along the River Cam at Upware.
Three crews from Cambridge and one from Ely were called to a large animal rescue along the river near the marina on Harrison's Drove.
Crews arrived at 5.51pm on Monday (August 12) to find a cow in water.
Wearing specialist in-water kit firefighters released the cow and returned the cow safely to the bank.
The crews returned to their stations by 9.40pm.
In a tongue-in-cheek Twitter post, Cambs Fire tweeted: "Crews were called to help remoooooove a cow from the River Cam.
"The cow definitely wasn't milking it. She was udderly stuck in thick weeds."
