Yes, this incredible story actually happened. In fact, even the fire department couldn’t believe it when they were told that a man, his dog and a turtle were trapped in a hole under a house.
Firefighters in Fontana, California, rescued a 70-pound turtle named Godzilla and a German shepherd named Taylor. Both were trapped in a tunnel with no exit.
The tunnel, which the tortoise had dug to hide from the winter cold, was quite deep and connected two separate houses.
How did it all begin?
It all started when the neighbors called the fire department for help. They said the man, his dog and the turtle couldn’t get out of the hole.
But when the firemen arrived, the man was already out of the hole. All that was left was the turtle and the dog, both trapped in the big hole.
Firefighters quickly responded and then dug a hole to enlarge it. When there was enough room, the dog quickly got out. While the turtle was attracted by a piece of lettuce and slowly climbed out of the hole.
Two of my friends were unharmed
Apart from the shock and discomfort experienced by the turtle and the dog, fortunately nothing bad happened. When they came out, the animals were very happy and relieved. For example, the dog was happily running around because he was happy to be free. The tortoise, on the other hand, was happily running around the garden.
Here is a video that first shows the dog’s suffering.
