There are a lot of tired police, firefighters and sheriff's deputies Saturday night, but they weren't fighting crime or putting out fires. They were taking part in the fourth annual law enforcement tractor pull in Rothschild.

This was a tractor pull of a different kind, where the people actually did the pulling themselves.

Nine teams tried to move this 40-ton semi truck and trailer.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Special Olympics, something that makes the athletes at today's event pretty happy.

"I think, I think it's really great and I'm glad everybody came out here and had a good time," Adam Domino, Special Olympics Athlete.

The tractor pull raised more than $12,000 for the Special Olympics.
