This is when rescue teams in New Orleans rescued a cow that had been dragged into a tree by the waters of Hurricane Ida.
The footage was taken near Florissant on Tuesday morning, days after Ida made landfall as a Category 4 storm, ravaging Louisiana with strong winds of 150 mph and torrential rain that led to devastating flooding.
The animal can squirm weakly above the medium-high tide as two workers carefully use a chainsaw to cut branches from the tree.
Ultimately, according to CNN, the cow has been rescued and is back on its feet. The cow seems surprisingly calm, perhaps exhausted from the ordeal, as they work to free him.

Ida was the fifth strongest hurricane ever to make landfall in the US as it swept south. As it moved eastward to Alabama, it snapped trees, overturned vehicles and flooded some streets after temporarily reversing the flow of the Mississippi, according to the report. Alabama News Center.
It died off as it passed the Mississippi interior. It is now considered a tropical depression because it heads into the Mid-Atlantic region of southern New York and New England where it can cause potentially deadly and damaging flash flooding.
