The Duplin County Animal Services rescued a steer involved in an accident on Interstate 40 Wednesday afternoon, according to The Duplin Times.
The steer was in a trailer that was pulled down the interstate.
Rescuers believed the animal shifted his weight too far forward, causing the trailer to strike the asphalt.
The animal was found with his head pinned between the trailer wall and his own body.
Rose Hill firefighters helped free the steer, and a veterinarian with the Warsaw Animal Hospital arrived on the scene to treat the animal.
Duplin County animal services, with the help of Kenansville firefighters and cattle workers, then loaded the animal into another trailer.
About an hour later, the steer was standing on its own.
