Both humans and animals cannot tolerate the cold weather. Unable to bear the cold weather, many animals fall prey to the dangers that arise during that time. It is especially prone to diseases such as frostbite and hypothermia. Therefore, people keep their animals very warm during winter.
Dean Ganver, who runs a farm in Roseville, Indiana, had to face an unexpected moment.
He also raises cattle on his farm. One cold morning in 2015, when he went to the farm, a wonderful incident happened. This enabled him to save the life of a milk cow caught in winter.
In the middle of the night, without his knowledge, one of his cows gave birth to a calf. The unfortunate news is that she gave birth to her cub on a pile of snow. The newborn calf was already covered in snow. The new born baby was now suffering from the most unbearable cold. Dean, who could see that the cub was barely breathing, acted quickly to save the cub.
He ran to his house to try to save the baby’s life. Judging from his experience, he knew he needed to bring the calf in for a hot bath as soon as possible. Although this situation was unusual, it could be executed with charm.
“I jumped in fully dressed, held Leroy up so he didn’t drown, and him and I had a nice bath for an hour,” Dean told WRTV.
“We both came out warm and I think the end story’s gonna be great for him.” After that relaxing jacuzzi session, the farmer wrapped his calf in warm heated blankets. He named the calf Leroy.
Before long, the cow’s health improved, her temperature returned to normal, and she was ready to join the herd with her calf. Dean says it was a kind and quick thought to save the life of this tiny cow and calf, but sharing the hot water that people use with cows is not common.
“Leroy’s officially done hot-tubbing,” he said. “Some sunbathing is definitely in his future out in the grass, but definitely his hot tub days are done.”
