TAMPA, Fla. -

No bull: This was one interesting distress call to Hillsborough County deputies and rescue crews.

The Tampa Tribune reports that a Hillsborough County Sheriff's deputy was the first to arrive Friday morning at the scene where a weakened 20-year-old bull was close to drowning in a pond.

Deputy Christina Ammons held the bull's head until crews arrived with a winch and pulled it to safety.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office documented the rescue through tweets, photos on Twitter, and on Facebook.

The bull is expected to make a full recovery.
