WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif., July 18 (UPI) -- Firefighters in California used tools to cut through a metal fence and free a dog that somehow trapped its head between the bars.
The West Sacramento Fire Department posted a video to Facebook showing the Engine 44 crew cutting through the metal bars Thursday to free the head of a German shepherd.
Firefighters worked to keep the dog calm so it wouldn't hurt itself during the rescue.
"Engine 44 responded this morning to a report of a dog trapped in a fence," the Facebook post said. "Engine 44 arrived on scene to find this German shepherd in a tight spot. With the owners assistance E44 worked quickly to free the trapped animal. Crews were happy to report there were no injuries and the dog is happy and healthy."
