Oh that's bad. Thanks for posting and for the warnings! That tree one is something to watch for here, for sure.

Had a heifer do the same thing in a hole in the side of a hollow maple tree. No idea how long she was there but it must have been awhile because she was knocking on deaths door by the looks of it. Found just in time and she ended up being ok. Sorry it wasn’t a good outcome for the OP. They sure know how to find trouble sometimes.

Here's my dummy

Another time I was just putting some dividers up in my feed bunk.. I look at one section and think to myself it's the perfect width for a head to get stuck.. So I went to the woodpile for another stick to put in, Lo and behold, yep, there was already a heifer stuck.. She did manage to get out on her own

We have an older metal hay feeder that has a couple bent up sections from being moved around with the loader over the years. Had a yearling heifer with her head stuck in it last winter. Found her after dark when I took hay out. Of course it was one of the coldest and windy nights we had, and the heifer was one of the craziest. Managed to stand in the feeder to get a bottle jack in there without her crushing my hand and she got out. Actually is much calmer and not as flighty around us after that experience.

Except for the calf stuck between the gate & the fence post, that is one really cool picture!
