The 660-pound calf, called Sparkle, was discovered in a state of distress after falling down the ravine on a farm Sheriff Park, near Penrith, Cumbria.
Fire-fighters were surprised to receive the call to rescue the 11-month-old bovine after its owner, Philip Armstrong, had noticed it missing from his farm.

I remember an episode of The Simpson when they're filming Radioactive Man in town.

Ralph, I think, sees a member of the film crew painting a horse.

Ralph:  Why are you pianting that horse to look like a cow?
Crew Member:  Cows don't look like cows on screen, you gotta use horses.
Ralph:  What happens when you need a cow?
Crew Member:  We usually just tape a bunch of cats together.

Maybe it wasn't a cow in the tree, maybe it was a load cats taped together (stuck there due to the cellotape), and they thought it was a cow...

Too bad there weren't any pictures of the cow in the tree.

When I first read the title I wondered how in the world does a cow get up a tree... :w00t: ...Poor thing, I'm glad it got rescued. It's got a sweet face. :)

The only pic I've found of it being rescued is here - not much to see though.

And then there's this which can't be right, as the cow is a different colour to the one in the OP :D

Tough to fly without wings. Forget when pigs fly, when cows try to fly. Mmmm, that steak must be tender. Someone needs to invent a cow hang glider or parachute.

There's no proper photos because it was later discovered that the "cow" was two Special Branch officers on surveillance duties.  Top secret.

Sparkle's experience will become a prime time movie and possibly an unauthorized biography titled, <u>Sparkle, The Truth Behind The Tree</u> it will be a biopic about her alleged drug use and how it drove her to the edge.  

It's a good thing she's cute.
