Crews from Llanwrtyd Wells, Rhayader, Llandrindod Wells and Llandovery were sent to rescue the animal in Llanwrtyd Wells.

They managed to pull the 600-kilogramme animal out of the bog using lines, strops, shovels, airbags and "brute strength," a Powys firefighter tweeted.

A local vet checked over the condition of the cow and reported that everything was "all good".

Fire crews then returned to their stations to clean the equipment.
