(E) Dog rescued after year down 30ft pit


Dog rescued after year down 30ft pit 

Nov 12 2002

A dog has been rescued after being trapped down a deep pit in Croatia for more than a year.

The dog was probably thrown into the 30 ft deep pit with a litter of puppies, the Zagreb newspaper Jutarnji reported.

Dinko Novosel, a member of an animal protection group, abseiled into the pit and rescued the dog.

The mongrel had survived by drinking rain water and eating dead animals, Novosel said. Locals use the pit, located on outskirts of a forest in central Croatia, as a dump for dead pets.

Novosel said the dog was given sedatives in food before it was rescued.

"Our first attempt to save the dog was without much luck as it was too startled and just scrambled into a small side crevice," he said

The dog was taken to a veterinary clinic in the capital Zagreb after the rescue. Novosel said that several dog lovers had already contacted him offering a home for the animal.
