Dog rescued from tree

Off-duty troopers find surprise in cemetery

You've heard of cats getting stuck in trees, but dogs?

It happened in Salem, Kentucky, CNN reported.

Two off-duty state troopers were doing work at a cemetery when they heard barking. They investigated and found a cute face sticking out of a tree.

Initial attempts to free the dog were unsuccessful -- so they called in the Fire Department.

A firefighter cut a hole in the trunk of the tree so that they could pull the pup out.

The dog, named Rocco, was reunited with his owner.



How did Rocco end up in the tree? Authorities said he crawled through a groundhog hole.
