Remember, remember, not to hide there again

A dog frightened by fireworks found herself stuck fast.

Taba escaped out of a window and became trapped between a conservatory and a brick wall. The dog was wedged head-first in a six-inch-wide gap in the back garden of a house in Watford.

RSPCA Inspector Rachel Smith tried to get Taba out but she was not budging – so she contacted Hertfordshire fire and rescue service to assist.

An emergency vet also attended to sedate Taba, who was quite distressed.

Three hours after starting their rescue, and with fireworks going off around them, Taba was safely freed using ropes to pull her out.

Apart from sore paws, she didn’t sustain any serious injuries.
Rachel said: “Taba spent a night at the vets before she went home – with some colourful bandages on her sore paws.”
