Maduo, which means "source of the Yellow River" in Tibetan, is located in the south of Qinghai Province, northwest of Guoluo Tibetan Autonomous Prefecture, with an average altitude of more than 4300,<> meters, which is the highest county in Qinghai Province, with outstanding ecological status and an important ecological barrier on the Qinghai-Tibet Plateau.
According to the police of the Yeniugou Police Station of the Maduo County Public Security Bureau, a few days ago, they received a report from the people in the jurisdiction that a herdsman's cattle accidentally fell into the lake and needed help. After receiving the alarm, the police from the police station immediately rushed to the scene of the incident with ropes and necessary rescue equipment.

After arriving at the area where the yak fell into the water, the police found several yaks struggling in the frozen lake, and the yak owner looked anxious. Subsequently, the herders and police officers carried out emergency rescue work when the temperature was below minus 20 degrees Celsius, regardless of their personal safety. The police of the Biniugou Police Station of the Maduo County Public Security Bureau said that because the vehicle could not pass on the lake, the rescue auxiliary police could only jump into the water, and did their best to lasso the rope to the cow, after 4 and a half hours of intense rescue, with the cooperation of everyone, struggled to pull the cattle ashore, and finally all 9 yaks were rescued ashore.

After the rescue, the yak owner pulled the soaked police officer with tears in his eyes and said excitedly: "You have worked hard, thank you so much!" These yaks are my treasures, and if you hadn't arrived in time to help me get them ashore, I would have watched the yaks be submerged, and the loss would have been too great. (ENDS)
