Greater Bliss: Miss Miracle survives mini Corvette Museum ordeal

The story of the little calf who survived a fall in new sinkhole and survive four days. It was a sinkhole which might have swallowed Miss Vicky on her little tractor, too. Instead she was able to stop, find Good Neighbor help, bring the calf to the surface and then to Miss Vicky's Pampered Angus ER barn, and nurse her back to health.

Report from Miss Victoria's Pampered Angus Ranch

A little calf I now call Miss Miracle fell in a new sinkhole out at the Hunter Place part of the Pampered Angus Ranch.

I looked for four days for her in the neighbors fields, thinking she had laid down next to the fence and got up on the other side.

To my surprise, while spraying on the small tractor, I almost ran in the hole.

I jumped off and looked down the hole, which was between 3 and 4 feet wide, and there she was, still alive.

With the help of a good neighbor and his wife, we pulled her up and took her to the barn.

After two full bottles of milk, she began to try to get up.

She is now walking around as if nothing happened.

So after her ordeal, I decided to name her Miss Miracle.

Guess she's a keeper. Vicky Pike
