Skipper is a special Jack Russell. After getting incredibly stuck in a badger sett, a complex network of tunnels underground, his owner had to call emergency services to dig him out.
After almost 7 hours of work, they managed to free Skipper. During this time, they excavated 50 square metres of earth….all because he broke free from his leash when a friend was walking him in November 2012. He followed his nose and, because he was dragging his leash, he became tangled.
His owner challenged the 13,000 euro bill she received; it’s been discounted to 10,000 in a settlement to end a court dispute.
How much would you spend to rescue your precious pooch?
