A teen was walking with her mom yesterday in Memphis when they heard a dog crying but couldn’t see the dog. They called police. It was determined that there was a dog trapped in a drain pipe. A crew from the public works department dug up the street to access the area of the pipe where the dog was trapped and then “they managed to reach in and get the dog out.” Yay public works crew! Then the professionals took over:
The dog was scared, though, so Memphis Animal Services had to use control poles on him[.]
The untrained public works folks reached in and pulled the dog out. But when the professional animal handlers from MAS got the dog, they had to string him up in a chokepole. TWO chokepoles, actually. Because one chokepole couldn’t possibly do the job. And of course a leash was out of the question – the dog was scared. Scared dogs require chokepoles. Two chokepoles. It’s always good to calm a frightened pet by stringing a metal noose around his neck. Two metal nooses.
I do love the caption on the photo above. If anyone wants to adopt the demon dog that was pulled from the bowels of hell and required TWO chokepoles for professionals to get him onto the truck, come on down to the pound and apply!
My stars, I bet the poor dog was like, “Put me back in the drain please.” I hope they don’t kill him after “rescuing” him.
