Both people and animals can’t stand it when it’s cold. Many animals die because they can’t handle the cold weather and the risks that come with it. Diseases like frostbite and hypothermia are especially likely to happen there. People keep their animals very warm in the winter because of this.
Dean Ganver runs a farm in Roseville, Indiana. One day, he had to deal with something he didn’t expect.
On his farm, he also takes care of cattle. Something wonderful happened when he went to the farm on a cold morning in 2015. He was able to save the life of a milk cow caught in the winter because of this.
One of his cows gave birth in the middle of the night, and he didn’t know about it. She gave birth to her cub on a pile of snow, which is bad news. The snow was already on the baby’s calf when it was born. The baby had just been born, and it was now so cold that it hurt to look at it. Dean acted quickly to save the cub when he saw it barely breathing.
He ran home to try to save the baby’s life. Based on what he had seen before, he knew he had to bring the calf inside as soon as possible for a hot bath. Even though this was a strange situation, it could be handled with style.
Dean told WRTV, “I jumped in fully dressed, held Leroy up so he wouldn’t drown, and we both enjoyed a nice bath for an hour.”
“We both felt good about it, and I think the ending will be good for him.” After that nice, relaxing Jacuzzi session, the farmer wrapped his calf in warm, heated blankets. He called the baby animal Leroy.
Soon, the cow’s health improved, her temperature returned to normal, and she and her calf were ready to join the herd. Dean says it was kind and quick of you to think of saving the lives of this small cow and calf, but cows don’t usually share the hot water that people use.
He said, “Leroy is no longer hot tubbing.” “He’ll probably lay out in the grass and soak up some sun, but his hot tub days are over.”
