Firefighters save a dog that chased a squirrel up a tree

While firefighters are most well-known for their abilities to rescue cats from trees, a fire department in Austin, Texas, had the unique challenge of rescuing a dog that happened to get herself stuck in a tree.

It seems the 76-pound dog – named Yauncey – got excited chasing a squirrel around and found herself climbing up a tree without an exit plan.

Once Yauncey was in the tree, she was too afraid to get down herself. And, at her size, her owners couldn’t get her down by themselves.

So, they called for help from the Austin Fire Department. A crew used a ladder and rescued Yauncey from her branch, bringing her safely to solid ground.
