CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- A North Carolina nonprofit known for its unusual rescues says it has extricated a newborn calf from a family's bathroom after a relative of the man keeping it pleaded for help.
The Charlotte Observer reports Carolina Waterfowl Rescue says it learned of the calf's plight from a social media message, adding a photo showed the calf standing on a hay-covered bathroom floor in an Asheville area home.
Jennifer Gordon of Caroline Waterfowl Rescue says it responded to the message on Jan. 29 by sending someone to get the calf, which was suffering from dehydration and diarrhea. It wasn't immediately clear why the calf was in the bathroom.
The nonprofit named the calf Lucy and put it in a fenced-in yard near Charlotte while seeking a new home for the animal.
