Rescue organization KNRM performed a rather odd rescue off the coast of Ameland on Tuesday afternoon. The rescue workers had to rescue a cow from the Wadden Sea. "Not an everyday job for the KNRM", the organization said on its website. 

The cow was in the water near Ballumerbocht. It took the KNRM two lifeboats and over an hour to get the cow out of the water. Using one of the lifeboats, KNRM rescuers finally managed to pull the cow to the Wadden Sea dyke on Ameland, where she was pulled from the sea with a crane and placed on a cattle wagon.

Last week, the first cows arrived at the Tosti Factory, which manufactures all the ingredients for tosti, a toasted sandwich with ham and cheese. Dichtbij.nl. reports that neighboring citizens are not pleased with the arrival of the cows because they seem to make much noise.

Dozens of complaints have been registered by local residents at Oostenburgereiland. The Tosti Factory reports that one particular cow, called Els, is the problem. “She has just been separated from her five-month-old calf and therefore lets out her heartbreaking sound.”
