A cow had to be airlifted to safety after falling off a cliff.

The animal was grazing atop a cliff near the Coscia di Donna beach in the north west of Sardinia when it fell over the edge.

Officers from Vigili del Fuoco, the Italian fire and rescue service, attended the scene and quickly called for a helicopter.

The cow was put into a harness and carried to a nearby vet.
