Curious Dog Gets Stuck In Pipe

April Livingston | April 22nd, 2019

A pit bull named Rocky loves to play outside in his home of North Carolina. So, when he was out running around one night something caught his eye: it was a possum. He chased it across the yard and when the possum ran into a pipe, Rocky followed it inside. Unfortunately, the possum was able to get out of the pipe on the other end but poor Rocky was very stuck. Rocky’s owners soon realized what happened and they contacted the Catawba County Animal Control organization for help. Animal control officers soon arrived on the scene and realized they needed additional assistance to get poor Rocky out of the pipe. So, Claremont Rescue came to assist.

The entire rescue team was assembled, and it was time to get to work. The first order of business was to figure out where in the long pipe Rocky was stuck so they could dig down and free him from his spot. The pipe was 100 feet long, so it took some time to figure it all out. Luckily, they soon located him and realized he was approximately 50 feet into the pipe. The good news is that they found him and he didn’t seem to be scared—really he was mostly annoyed that the possum had escaped him. So, the team began digging down toward Rocky.

It took over two hours, but the team finally freed Rocky from the pipe. He was so excited to be out of the pipe that he began wagging his tail and even went up to each of his rescuers to “thank” them for their efforts. He was not the only person who was grateful for the efforts of rescuers, of course. Rocky’s owners were so happy that their sweet dog was free and safely out of the pipe. Here’s hoping Rocky learned his lesson about chasing possums into tight areas!
