Ground-dog day as silly sausage Rocco barks up wrong tree
Is it a bird? A cat? No, it's Rocco the barking mad dachshund, who had to be rescued by firefighters when he got stuck inside a tree trunk.
Two off-duty Kentucky state troopers were mowing grass at a cemetery in Salem when they heard the plaintive barking.
They looked around for several minutes and finally found the dog - trapped inside the tree.
Apparently Rocco had climbed into a nearby hole dug by a groundhog and found his way up through the tree trunk - and that's where he became stuck.
A trunk call was made to firefighters who cut into part of the tree, safely freeing Rocco.
