A pair of off-duty troopers from the Kentucky State Police were helping to mow a cemetery lawn few days ago when they heard what sounded like a dog in distress emanating from a forested area close by, so they decided to investigate.
At first, they had trouble locating the source of the noise, and it soon became clear why. Rocco was trapped inside the trunk of a tree
Rocco has managed to get inside the tree through a nearby ground hole, and was unable to get out
The officers called on the Salem fire department to cut part of the tree after initial attempts to free Rocco proved unsuccessful
Rocco was reunited with his owner and will probably think twice before venturing down a hole again
