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.
