Dachshund rescued after getting stuck in culvertAugust 7, 2019
By The Associated Press
BLOOMINGTON — An inquisitive dog that got stuck inside a southern Indiana culvert was rescued after workers cut into the metal drainage pipe.
The long-haired dachshund wandered into the pipe beneath a driveway Monday in Bloomington. But the dog, named Ollie, got stuck because the pipe's other end was crushed and he couldn't turn around.
Mike Stinson with Bloomington's street department was called to the scene with two co-workers.
Stinson tells The Herald-Times that he used bolt cutters to slowly cut, twist and remove the pipe's crushed end. Eventually, he was able to reach inside and pet Ollie to reassure the trapped pooch.
Stinson and an animal control worker then worked together to extract the dog from the pipe's newly opened end.
He says the freed canine "was a happy camper."
