Date: 16/04/2010

Incident name: Rowville MVA

Brigades: Dandenong, Rowville

District: 13

Brandy, who is a member of the Animals on the Move Petting Zoo, was trapped in her trailer after it was involved in a motor vehicle accident around 1:30pm today.

Rowville First Lieutenant Russell Smith said the initial call was for a normal motor vehicle accident, however they arrived to find something out of the ordinary.

“Once we were on scene we saw that one of the cars had what looked like a box trailer. On closer inspection we saw that it was a horse float with a cow trapped inside,” he said.

“There were a number of people around the trailer trying to help. The cow was moving and kicking in distress so we moved them away from the trailer.”

“Dandenong Rescue were on the radio, so we called them to the accident for assistance.”

“A vet was also called to sedate the cow and we were able to extricate her by cutting the roof off and rolling her out of the trailer.”

Brandy suffered some minor cuts and scratches but is otherwise fine.
