State Troopers Rescue Golden Retriever From Culvert in Conklin
A couple of New York State troopers managed to pull a dog out of a culvert pipe in the town of Conklin.
Authorities say Troopers Jimmy Rasaphone and Ana Reynas were sent to check on a report of a canine stuck in a pipe.
Rasaphone learned a 13-and-a-half-year-old golden retriever named Lilah had been missing for several days and had been located in an underground spot.
According to a state police social media post, the trooper tied a rope to the dog's leash and went into the dark pipe. He found Lilah after crawling about 15 feet.
Rasaphone put a collar on the dog and with the owner's assistance, the troopers pulled her to safety.
The state police post did not provide information about Lilah's condition.
This was the second reported rescue operation involving a golden retriever in Broome County in less than two weeks.
On June 16, a thirteen-year-old pet named Dalilah was unable to get out of a fast-moving creek just west of Johnson City.
Firefighters using ropes and other equipment were able to reach her and reunite her with her owner.
ICYMI: Emergency crews come to the aid of Dalilah earlier this month.
