A dog accompanying a group of hunters fell into a dry well, in the heart of the Avesnois Regional Natural Park. Because it found itself at the bottom of this old pump 20 meters deep, the canine could only be rescued thanks to the firefighters.
Yesterday Sunday, a hunting dog , of the Spaniel type and responding to the name of Apple , was alongside hunters in Trélon , in the North, when he found himself in a very bad position. As reported by France Bleu , in fact, the quadruped fell to the bottom of a hole 20 meters deep.
The hunters had no way of helping him. They then called for help . The Trélon firefighters quickly arrived. They were soon joined by a team of specialized colleagues from the GRIMP (Group for Reconnaissance and Intervention in Perilous Milieu), specified last night the SDIS 59 (departmental fire and rescue service of the North) in a tweet.
