Trapped in an underground cavity in Nan-sous-Thil since Sunday, 2 hunting dogs were finally rescued early Tuesday afternoon. It was the specialized firefighters of the Costa Rican rescue service who carried out this rescue using a mini-excavator.
2 hunting dogs were returned unharmed to their owner, 2 days after finding themselves trapped underground in Nan-sous-Thil , a rural town of less than 200 inhabitants and located in the Côte-d’Or department .
As reported by France Bleu , the misadventure of this quadruped duo began last Sunday (December 27, 2020). While accompanying their master, a local hunter , the canines had made their way into a sort of underground cavity , probably chasing an animal that had been hiding there.
The hunting dogs could no longer come out . In the meantime, their owner had lost sight of them . After much research, he finally defined their location. The man could not come to their aid, however, because the place was completely inaccessible to him . He therefore made the decision to call for help on Monday shortly after midday.
The next morning, concern grew , because neither he nor the firefighters could hear the dogs. A few hours later, they were joined by a specialized team , the SDIS 21 rescue-clearing team (Côte-d’Or departmental fire and rescue service).
