A PIG trapped in a slurry pit has been safely rescued by firefighters.
The animal was hauled from the four-foot-deep pit, at Cooks Castle Farm, Wroxall, yesterday (Sunday) afternoon.
It is not known how the pig became trapped in the pit although it is understood the animal was stuck for around five hours.
Firefighters and a duty vet attended the scene, at St John's Road, after the alarm was raised shortly before 11am.
After draining water from the hole and removing part of the pit wall to gain access, ropes were used to pull the pig to freedom.
A spokesman for the fire service said the animal was unharmed.
