Cows injured during their summer sojourn in the high Swiss Alpine meadows got a jump on their healthier herdmates on Friday when they got helicopter rides down the mountain.
A dozen beasts got the lift to land near the Klausenpass mountain pass, around 1,950 metres above sea level.
Despite the dramatic transport, dairy farmer Jonas Arnold said the airlifted cows didn’t seem too fazed by their aerial trip.
The rest of the 1,000-strong herd was due to head down this weekend to the Urnerboden area in the central canton of Uri in the annual bovine parade.
