FAIRBURN, Ga. (June 4, 2015) — A bull that fell into a well at a farm in the Fulton County, Ga., community of Fairburn has been freed.

According to WGCL, rescue effort took place at the farm on the 5100 block of Bethlehem road in Fairburn. Fire and rescue crews said the hole the bull fell in is about 15 to 20 feet deep. They also say the animal weighs around 1,000 pounds and is of the Brahman breed.

“This bull is named Boy,” said Deputy Chief Charles Stubbs of Fulton County Fire and Rescue. “We spoke with a man who breeds this type of bull and apparently they are very stubborn. And when they get angry they tend to pout and sit down. And that is what this bull did.”

It was around 5:30 a.m. Wednesday when the farmer first noticed his bull had fallen in a well in his pen. Crews then began to work to figure out how to get the animal out while giving it food and water to keep it awake and alert. Finally they brought in a large tractor to dig a huge ramp to allow the bull to walk out on its own.

Fulton County rescue crews brought in a large animal rescue crew from Milton County. They used a crane to lift the bull out of the hole.
