Sometimes dogs have the ability to get themselves into tight spots. That was the case in Cripple Creek, Colorado.
Two dogs, a border collie and a chihuahua, were trapped in a 500 foot mine yesterday. It was unknown how long they were there. The rescuers tried to lure them out with food as bait, but they didn't want to budge. The border collie was staying put and the chihuahua, refused to leave the border collie's side. Since their initial efforts did not work, the rescuers tried to regroup and attempted again this morning.
Flash forward to 7:30 MDTA mine manager from the Cripple Creek spotted the dogs and was able to coax them into the truck with his lunch. Many dogs have been in similar situations where they've become trapped in that mine. It has been said that the mine is set up in a way that the dogs can crawl out of it.
Somehow, they've always to get themselves out. The rescuers were hoping that was the case and sure enough it worked. The dogs rescuing themselves just go to show how a little will and determination can overcome and tough situation.
