- Story Text: Cows injured during their summer sojourn in the high Swiss Alpine meadows got a jump on their healthier herdmates on Friday (August 27) when they got helicopter rides down the mountain.
Around 10 beasts got the lift to land near the Klaunespass mountain pass, around 1,950 metres (6,400 feet) above sea level.
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.
