Cats often get stuck in trees. What would you say about a dog stuck in a water tank? It was Sunday when firefighters found a dog in a water tank in an old water treatment plant in Charleston. People reported hearing barks from inside. It was not determined yet as to how the Labrador retriever got inside the empty concrete tank but it was pretty clear that the dog needs help.
According to Charleston Fire Chief Pat Goodwin, firefighters climbed down the 14-foot deep tank and raised the dog using a harness. The dog weighed about 80 pounds.
Coles County animal control officer Josh Pfoor said the dog, although scared, is already fine. The dog was reunited with his owners.
