A rescue operation swung into action this morning after a pony’s escape attempt went wrong.
Bumble managed to get out of their paddock – but promptly got stuck in a cattle grid.
Firefighters from Acomb and Tadcaster were called in to help at the scene, near Moor Monkton, at 6am today (Monday).
The firefighters were helped by a vet from Minster Vets in York.
They used specialist lifting equipment to free the pony.
Group Manager Bob Hoskins said on Twitter: “Bumble was unharmed.”
