Stuck for nearly a week, dog rescued from pipe

The Charleston Gazette-Mail reports that Pinch residents on Thursday found a dog stuck in an underground storm pipe. The neighbors had been hearing the dog’s barks for days but had been unable to locate the canine.

With the help of a West Virginia American Water crew, members of the Pinch Fire Department dug up concrete and cut the pipe in order to free Mater, a 14-year-old beagle mix who had been missing since March 25.

The dog was taken to a veterinarian and is safely back with his owners, who say they’re planning to install a fence.
