Firefighters free dog with head stuck inside tire rim

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — A dog which got its head stuck inside the rim of a junk tire was freed by Indianapolis firefighters using their tools for extricating people from wrecked cars.

The Fire Department says a woman showed up Friday evening at a station north of the city’s downtown with the neighborhood stray which she had found trapped and loaded up in her car.

Firefighters tried using liquid soap and oil to ease the dog’s head out before calling for a crew from another station with extrication tools. They worked for more than an hour to cut apart the tire and rim while keeping the pit bull mix calm.

The dog didn’t appear injured after the ordeal and was sent home with the woman who brought it in.
