Following Hurricane Ida, Louisianans got to work assessing storm damage and helping their neighbors, be they human or bovine.
Tuesday evening, St. Bernard Parish shared a video of classic Louisiana neighborly care: Road Yard Chief of Operations Louis Pomes and parish government employees Tyler Acosta, David Palmer and Roy Ragan Sr. saved a cow that was stuck in a tree.
The rescue workers found the cow stuck in Florissant, Louisiana, located east of New Orleans.
The video quickly went viral, garnering tens of thousands of views and likes on social media. It has received over 75,000 views on Facebook.
Reporters and other social media users shared their disbelief at the situation that was strange for humans and animals alike.

One week after Hurricane Ida made landfall, tens of thousands of residents were still without power Monday. Most residents in New Orleans will have power by Wednesday, Entergy estimates, but a handful of parishes may not regain power until Sept. 29.
Ida is tied for the fifth strongest hurricane to hit the U.S. mainland based on windspeed at landfall.
