Send a link to a friend

[January 30, 2009]  KALAMA, Wash. (AP) -- A Kalama police officer reached into a tank of sewage to rescue a dog that had jumped inside.

The officer, Jeff Skeie, was able to grab the sinking dog by the ear Tuesday and pull it out by the scruff of its neck. He had waste only on the sleeves of his uniform until the dog gave itself a vigorous shake, spraying him head-to-toe with sewage.

The dog was a stray that took off while its pen was being cleaned. It jumped in the sewage treatment plant's digester and was unable to swim in the foamy liquid.

After the rescue, The Longview Daily News reported, the officer took a long shower and the chocolate Labrador had a bath. It was adopted later in the day by a woman who named it Hershey.
