A fire and rescue service was called on Tuesday to Diamond Jubilee Wood in Normanton Le Heath.
A dog owner was desperate as his dog was stuck for over 60 hours inside a badger’s sett, underground.
A little scared, but safe
The rescue service used listening and locating devices to identify the dog’s exact location, and then proceeded to dig the ground to access him.
Thankfully, the dog was saved, and despite being a little shaken up, he was in otherwise good health.
Beware of badgers
A hole in the ground may not look like much at first sight, but a badger's sett can actually consist of several hundreds of metres of tunnels, so getting stuck in one can be quite a pickle!
Experts warn dog owners to be very careful at this time of year as many wild animals are having babies, and are therefore particularly defensive and aggressive. This dog was very lucky, as the badger said is thought to have been inactive! Hopefully he’s learned his lesson and won’t go exploring underground tunnels again!
