An Ohio steer weighing more than 1,000 pounds got trapped in a frigid swimming pool this week. The 6-year-old Limousin steer, named Walter, apparently has a penchant for escaping his corral. He once wandered across the street to a local high school.
Submerged in the 9-foot-deep swimming pool, Walter needed the help of a police officer, a fire crew and neighbors to get out of the water. Those helping looped a rope around Walter’s neck and guided him to the shallow end to use the steps. The steer was not injured during the incident.
