Firefighters from Skawina near Krakow rescued a dog that got stuck in the corridors of a fox hole. For a long time, the rescuers dug blindly, but finally they heard the whimpering of a scared dog trapped under a one and a half-meter layer of earth. The dog was rescued after a three-hour operation in the cold and in the dark.

As the head of the Volunteer Fire Department, Krzysztof Czopek, told us, the dog entered the fox hole, most likely while walking with its owner, who, concerned about the animal’s prolonged absence, called the services.

– The dog must have entered the hole and either got lost or got stuck. In any case, he was trapped and could not be heard. At first we dug blindly, trying to locate it. There are many similar burrows in this place – Czopek reports.

After about 2.5 hours of tedious digging around the river bank, one of the rescuers heard whimpering. – The dog was about one and a half meters underground. We managed to dig him out, fortunately it didn’t look like anything had happened to him, although he was very scared – says the head of the Volunteer Fire Department in Korabniki.

The effect was excellent. Despite doubts about the effectiveness, the commander made a decision, we dig and search until we succeed (…). For us, you are heroes,” he wrote. The entry was shared by the Krakow fire brigade.
