Cow rescued from floodwaters in Powell

Local News

Rescue crews worked to save a cow from floodwaters Sunday afternoon.

An area humane society responded to reports of a cow that had been trapped since Saturday night. The Hooves & Feathers Animal Humane Society worked with the Knoxville Volunteer Emergency Rescue Squad and other first responders to bring the bovine to safety.

The cow’s owner surrendered her to the humane society for care. She was taken to the University of Tennessee’s College of Veterinary Medicine, and we’re told likely has pneumonia.
