A missing golden retriever named Lilah, discovered deep inside a culvert pipe in upstate New York, could not be lured out by her owner with peanut butter dog treats or cheese. In the end, State Trooper Jimmy Rasaphone decided to crawl about 15 feet into the pipe under a rural road to rescue Lilah, despite the extremely tight fit. The trooper and retriever both emerged soaking wet, but safe. Rasaphone and his partner showed up within minutes of the call. Rasaphone said he’d go into the pipe since he was the smallest of the three of them. The pipe was estimated to be 2 feet in diameter.
Police show their compassion like this all the time...it's not something they learn at the Academy!
