JEFFERSON COUNTY, Colo. (CBS4) – It was an unprecedented sight for first responders in Jefferson County: three full-sized Mastiffs stuck in a storm drain.
“Ever seen a mastiff in a storm drain? How about THREE of them in a storm drain? We hadn’t either til this week,” the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office tweeted.
The sheriff’s office said the dogs escaped from their yard near W. Arlington Place and S. Zinnia Court, saw a culvert and ran in.
“Dogs are funny and curious creatures who love exploring, especially when they’ve escaped their yard. At least this furry group brought their friends along when they ran into a culvert nearby,” the sheriff’s office joked on Facebook.
“Thankfully our friends at West Metro Fire Rescue were able to rescue them safely.”
“We’re happy this story had a happy ending for everyone. And whether you have four legs or two, we’ll be here if you need us, JeffCo,” the sheriff’s office wrote.
