Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Service were called to a field in Kineton yesterday afternoon, after receiving a 999 call to state that a young Fox Terrier named Zac had become trapped inside an underground rabbit burrow for nearly eight hours.
A crew from Gaydon attended the incident and on arrival they found that a member of the public had started to dig an access hole in the area where barking could be heard. Shortly after, …a network of runs were opened to help establish the direction Zac had travelled.
The rescue was a real team effort as both time and light were against the crew, assistance was given by local builders Hawk Construction Ltd, who kindly gave up their time to dig a channel so crews could get to Zac and bring him out to safety.
On his release, Zac was a little shaky but was none the worse after his ordeal. A huge thanks goes out to everyone who assisted with the rescue. We hear that Zac is doing well and doesn’t intend on going down another rabbit hole anytime soon!
