It had been 22 hours since Tigrou, a senior dog, was trapped in a conduit buried under a field in the Hérault. The owners of the land, but also the municipality and the inhabitants, joined forces to help him.
On Sunday October 4 at the end of the day, the owners of Tigrou , a 13-year-old dog , saw him fall into a drainage nozzle while he was walking on a field located not far from Caux (34), town about twenty km from Béziers .
Its owners tried in vain to attract it to the surface by calling it, but the animal could not extricate itself from the narrow cavity where it was trapped . After several unsuccessful attempts, they had to resolve to leave the premises to return the next day , very early in the morning.
Their new efforts have not met with more success. They could only hear the barking of the quadruped, as reported by Occitanie Tribune . Fortunately, they were able to count on the help of their friends François Martinez and Jack Henri Cavaller , who triggered a tremendous outpouring of solidarity .
After obtaining the agreement of the owners of the field, Thierry , Rosalie and their daughter Jessica Berzosa , they asked the town hall which provided them with a backhoe loader . A man by the name of José Martinez took control of the machine.

In the meantime, Jean Lannantuoni , a local plumber , arrived with a miniature camera thanks to which the masters of Tigger were finally able to see him, shortly before 4 p.m. José Martinez dug almost the entire length of the field and finally, 22 hours after falling, the senior dog was recovered unharmed .
His family thanked everyone who made this rescue possible.
