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.

夏天逗留於瑞士阿爾卑斯高山牧場期間受傷的乳牛群,週五搭著直升機下山,比其他較健康的同伴早一步搶得先機。

A dozen beasts got the lift to land near the Klausenpass mountain pass, around 1,950 metres above sea level.

12隻動物搭機降落在海拔約1950公尺的克勞森山口附近。

Despite the dramatic transport, dairy farmer Jonas Arnold said the airlifted cows didn’t seem too fazed by their aerial trip.

儘管有著戲劇化的運輸過程,酪農喬納斯.阿諾德說,空運的乳牛似乎不害怕這場空中旅程。

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.

其餘多達1000頭的獸群預計本週末加入年度牛隻遊行,向南走往中部烏里州厄內博登地區。
