Aug. 24 (UPI) -- Emergency responders and municipal workers gathered in a California city to rescue a large dog that became stuck in a small drain pipe.

Tuolumne County Animal Control said officers were called out Monday on a report of an animal trapped in a drain pipe, and they arrived to find a large pit bull wedged in the small pipe.


The Tuolumne Fire Department, Tuolumne Parks and Rec and Tuolumne City Sanitary District helped to extract the canine safely.

Animal control shared a video of the dog "appreciating their bath" after being removed from the pipe.

The agency said the dog was taken to the city's shelter and was to be evaluated by a veterinarian.
