Dog freed by Leicestershire firefighters after being trapped underground for more than 60 hours

 Specialist listening and locating equipment was sent to the woods and the unlucky dog was finally freed.

Firefighters rescued a dog who had been trapped underground in a badger sett for more than 60 hours.

On Tuesday, crews were dispatched to Diamond Jubilee Wood in Normanton Le Heath, Leicestershire.

It had been trapped for two and a half days, according to the owner.

Firefighters used specialized listening and locating equipment, and the RSPCA was also dispatched to the scene to ensure the animal’s safety.

They were able to locate the dog’s sound underground and enlisted additional assistance in digging it up.

After being freed, the dog’s head emerges from the dirt, and the animal lies sprawled on the ground, according to images provided by Leicestershire Fire and Rescue Service.

The dog was returned to its owner and the RSPCA, according to firefighters, while the badgers’ sett is believed to be dormant.

Setts are made up of a network of underground tunnels and entrances, with the largest ones having hundreds of meters of tunnels and enough space for about 30 badgers.
