Pull The Udder One

‘WHEN Kim Riley was swept away by floods she feared for her life. The area around Mrs Riley’s farm in Woodville, New Zealand, was hit by ferocious storms when she was leading a herd of around 350 cows to safety.

Suddenly, a current of floodwater took her and her herd. “It was amazing how the current picked me up,” she says. “Before I knew it, I as being pushed along with the cows… I thought most of the cows had abandoned me. They were strong swimmers and they left me in their wake. But I looked back and saw one of the last cows bearing down me, number 569. As went by I threw my arm over her neck”.

The cows, labelled an “ugly old tart” by Mrs Riley, swam them both to safety.’
