Calf trapped in an earth fissure
AZGS geologist Joe Cook passed along this additional photo of the calf that he and Mike Mahan rescued from an earth fissure yesterday, near Elfrida, east of Tucson.
Note the heavier vegetation and tree growing along the fissure, which is common. That draws wildlife and stock to the shade, and hides the fissure from view.
The calf was turned over to the rancher.
