One bovine got into some steer-ious trouble Monday in Boyds, Maryland.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue spokesperson Pete Piringer tweeted shortly before 1 p.m. that a 2,000-pound steer was stuck in a muddy ravine along Whites Store Road.

Piringer said the animal did not appear to be injured.

Authorities used a “grip” winch, cables and straps to haul the bovine free.

How the steer got stuck was not immediately clear.
