In a Facebook post, the news station shared a photo of the black-and-white cow standing in the water as firefighters look on.

"A 'Mool'? No, that's udderly ridiculous, it's a pool with a cow in it!" WKBT captioned the photo, which has been shared more than 1,800 times.

The station didn't offer further details about how rescuers were able to moo-ve the bovine, which "was safely returned home," the post said.

The Ettrick Fire Department seemed to take it all in stride.

"Well, we made the news I guess, lol," the department responded in its own post, adding, "At least we got her out safe."
