Cow stuck in tree after Hurricane Ida rescued by workers in Louisiana bayou

Following Hurricane Ida, Louisianans got to work assessing storm damage and helping their neighbors,  be they human or bovine.


© Storyful  Workers in Louisiana rescued a cow that got stuck in a tree after Hurricane Ida made landfall.

Tuesday evening, St. Bernard Parish  shared a video  of classic Louisiana neighborly care: Road Yard Chief of Operations Louis Pomes and parish government  employees Tyler Acosta, David Palmer and Roy Ragan Sr. saved a cow that was stuck in a tree. 

The rescue workers found the cow stuck in Florissant, Louisiana, located east of New Orleans.

The video quickly went viral, garnering tens of thousands of views and likes on social media. It has received over 75,000 views on Facebook. 

Reporters and other social media users shared their disbelief at the situation that was strange for humans and animals alike.

One week after Hurricane Ida made landfall, tens of thousands of residents were still without power Monday.  Most residents in New Orleans will have power by Wednesday, Entergy estimates, but a handful of parishes may not regain power until Sept. 29.

Ida is tied for the fifth strongest hurricane to hit the U.S. mainland  based on windspeed at landfall.

In the movie "Big Fish" there is a scene where the car of the protagonist is stuck up in a tree because of a massive storm.


I didn't take it seriously because the protagonist was known to tell tall tales.  But then I read the seed posted above.

If you live long enough, you will see a cow in a tree. Next week maybe a horse?

Poor cow. I'm glad they rescued her

They are standing waste deep in murky water in the Louisiana Bayou? 

I think I would let the cow become croc food rather than risk becoming croc food myself.

Almost forgot the snakes. They have pythons now; and of course the regional cotton mouth. 

Cow is very fortunate if didn't have to rely on me for the rescue. I would be taking bets on what would kill it first.
