Animal Watch: Dedicated to Rusty, My Friend's Poodle

Sunday, March 7, 2010

MANCHESTER AVE. NW, 1400 block, Feb. 23. Animal control received a call about a poodle that had become stuck in a tree after it had chased a raccoon or opossum up it. An animal control officer found the dog about seven feet up and called the fire department to assist with a ladder. The officer climbed the tree to restrain the dog, and a firefighter helped both of them down the ladder. The uninjured animal was returned to its owner, who said that it was not the first time the dog had been stuck in a tree.
