Three stray dogs were safely rescued after falling into a wastewater retention pond in the Thalang district over this past weekend.
Rescue workers were notified by local residents at 2:40 P.M. in Baan Para, Paklok sub-district on Friday (May 6th). They arrived at the scene to find three stray dogs in a sprawling wastewater retention pond with black slippery plastic surfacing. The three animals were trying to come up from the pond but failed as it was too slippery and steep.
Local residents stated that first one dog fell into the water and the other two animals appeared to attempt to save their friend by also entering the pond, however, all three canines then became stuck.
Rescue workers used a ladder to place into the pond. They used ropes to securely tie the dogs before helping pull them up from the pond.
All three stray dogs were safe but hungry and tired. Rescue staff provided them with a meal and suggested to local residents to fence off the pond to prevent animals or even children from entering the area and becoming stuck.
