Firefighters Rescue Dog From Storm Drain In West Roxbury

WEST ROXBURY (CBS) – Boston firefighters came to the rescue Tuesday afternoon of a dog that managed to get stuck in a storm drain.

The dog apparently wandered into a sloped 15-foot drain at Millennium Park in West Roxbury and was unable to climb out.

Firefighters managed to hook the dog’s leash using a long pole, and they pulled the pup to safety.

The dog could be seen wagging its tail and did not appear to have been injured.

    Huh…would that mean the dog was not on the leash? Violating the leash law? And didn’t get punished? Why have laws if they’re not punishable. (Poor beagle deserves a better owner than that!)

    Watch closely as ‘Bailey the dog thanks the ‘firefighter’ who saved him…

    Just a Please & ‘thank you’…..from ‘mans best friend’!

    So glad they rescued the dog. Maybe that drain needs some kind of
    vent to prevent dogs and small children from falling into it.
