The elk got tangled in the fence, the dog fell into the crack
Senior Captain Krzysztof Gomółka from the KP PSP in Radzyń Podlaski recalls that not so long ago firefighters rescued an elk that had become entangled with its antlers in a net surrounding a forest nursery.
– I also remember that once we also pulled out a dog that fell into a crack in the outbuilding. It was narrow and about a meter deep.
