FAIRBURN, Ga. (AP) - Animal rescue crews freed a trapped 1,500-pound bull that had fallen into an abandoned well on a farm in Fulton County.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (https://on-ajc.com/1SXuy0Q ) reports more than a dozen workers with a crane truck pulled the animal out of the hole Wednesday afternoon, shortly after 2:30 p.m. Police and firefighters from Fulton County, Milton and Cherokee County arrived at 8:55 a.m. to help save the bull, who was lodged snugly in a well estimated to be about 15 feet deep and narrow.

Milton Fire Chief says workers first used a backhoe to dig a larger opening for the bull to escape through on its own, but the animal was too exhausted.

Rescue officials said the bull appeared to be uninjured.
