Tennesse family’s coonhound found himself in a sticky situation when he managed to fall down a hole that was 30-feet deep on February 10. The dog, named Tanner, was rescued by the Knoxville Volunteer Emergency Rescue Squad (KVERS) after they were contacted by the local sheriff’s department. A post shared by the rescue squad on February 11, explains that they used a rope-rescue system which successfully lifted the trapped animal to safety. According to the same post, the family luckily had a GPS tracker in Tanner’s collar, which is how they found him stuck down the hole. The hound appeared to have been good health after he was rescued, KVERs wrote. A video of the incident can be seen below. Credit: Knoxville Volunteer Emergency Rescue Squad, Inc. via Storyful
