The only way to get the cow out of the boat is by destroying the boat.
You need to use a lead to make the cow/animal to stand up, but dont walk away because then it will just get back in the boat. When on the lead, the animal will just kind of stand on top of the boat, then you can destroy the boat with a sword without hurting the animal.
If the cow entered there accidentally,remove the boat by hitting it(dont hit the cow!),and dont let it get back in the boat again,if you do not want this trouble again.
You cant hit the boat on the sides or else it hits the animal.
I was transporting my horse and had to get under the boat AND hit the boat in the right spot (seemed to be a bottom corner).
Amazingly I just used a lead to remove a dog from a boat. I havent thoroughly tested this, but you happen to have a lead, use it on the animal (you may or may not need to lead it out).
Adding to Bobs answer, you can use F3+B to view the hitboxes of the boat and the animal, to make sure when breaking the boat you dont accidentally hurt the animal too

Rachel had been bouncing around different gaming websites as a freelancer and staff writer for three years before settling at PC Gamer back in 2019. She mainly writes reviews, previews, and features, but on rare occasions will switch it up with news and guides. When shes not taking hundreds of screenshots of the latest indie darling, you can find her nurturing her parsnip empire in Stardew Valley and planning an axolotl uprising in Minecraft. She loves stop and smell the roses games—her proudest gaming moment being the one time she kept her virtual potted plants alive for over a year.
Theres a couple of ways to get from point A to point B in Minecraft, but each has a downside. Riding a horse is one, but you need to tame it first. Another is the classic minecart, but you need to lay down miles of track to make it actually work. The fastest way is actually by boat, but you need a body of water to use it. Or do you? One Minecraft player has found an ingenious way to use a boat without any water. They instead use hundreds of cows.
PewDiePie accidentally lets a bunch of his cows out of his pen. He lets a baby and an adult live, however, because they look cute in his boat.
