Dog stuck in rabbit hole in Wooburn rescued after two-and-a-half hour operation

Bucks Free Press: Dog stuck in rabbit hole rescued after two-and-a-half hour operation Dog stuck in rabbit hole rescued after two-and-a-half hour operation

A DOG which got stuck in a rabbit hole was rescued by fire fighters after a two-and-a-half hour operation on Sunday.

Tinker the Terrier got stuck when on a family walk in Wooburn Park, and it took shovels and a ‘snake-eye’ camera to get the light brown terrier back out.

A Bucks Fire and Rescue Service spokesman, Fraser Pearson, said: “We are pleased it had a happy ending but it is also a reminder to dog owners to keep an eye on hazards.”

He added: “He (the dog) seemed happy, keen to move around, just a bit muddy but I am sure he was given a good clean.”

Very good that fire and rescue service helped family on busy floody hell weekend. Happy ending. Hope the family pay a fee.

If the dog was on a lead like it should be then this would not have happened. Not to worry though call out the fire and rescue service when they could be dealing with more important issues. If the dog is stupid enough to go down a hole then what do you expect.
You see countless dog owners letting their dogs run wild, they should consider other open space users.

Dog stuck in Bourne End,but the lazy and in-imaginative reporter could not be even bothered to pull out an appropriate photo from BFP's vast array of carefully selected archive !
To a casual observer, it would seem from the displayed photo that the dog was stuck somewhere in the Eden car park, miles away from the story actually states. Perhaps the fire-fighters were looking at the wrong place to begin with. This newspaper is becoming a total farce !

My sincere apology regarding earlier post. I was meant to say that the location was Wooburn not Bourne End. I just wrote Bourne End a second earlier somewhere else and it stuck in my head.

Totally agree - have being saying as much for years, bone idle reporting. Hard to believe this story actually qualifies as news anyway. Elsewhere, Micklefield man loses pound coin down back of sofa - fire brigade "did all they could"... *sniff*

Hilarious closing statement !
If it was left for the BFP to report this story about the loss of the coin, then they would have stuck on a photo of a raccoon, out shopping for a wedding dress with it's clutch bag being blown in the wind and a crude sketch of a circular object falling from it !

All too silly.
Good story about dog being rescued by firefighters, pointless photo of fire engine in irrelevant location and followed by bovine remarks by some people here. No need for a photo unless it showed rescue. Needs thanks added from dog's owner. Who are they? Photo of dog with grateful owner(s)?

I've checked several other local papers and I see they have all used general photos from files to illustrate all sorts of stories. Bit of a pity - but never mind. Many local papers have had to reduce staffing plus extra pressure for stop-gap measures therefore on those still left in offices.
