Bomberos rescata a ardilla que quedó con su cabeza atrapada en el hoyo de un árbol

Bomberos dio a conocer un video que muestra el rescate a una ardilla luego que quedó con su cabeza atrapada en el hoyo de un árbol

El Departamento de Bomberos de Austin en Estados Unidos dio a conocer un video en donde muestran como rescataron a una ardilla que quedó atrapada en un árbol.

Mediante una publicación en Facebook, señalaron que “el equipo respondió a una angustiada llamada al 911 que había informado del caso de una ardilla que de alguna manera había logrado que su cabeza se atascara en el agujero de un árbol y no pudiera liberarse. La ardilla se encontraba con la mitad delantera atascada dentro del interior del árbol, mientras que la mitad trasera permanecía desprotegida”.

“Hemos ayudado a muchos animales de los árboles antes, pero esta puede ser la primera vez que literalmente sacamos a un animal de un árbol. Y como se puede ver en el video, no fue tarea fácil. Después de dos minutos de trabajo, los bomberos Austin Konopik y Steven Slaughter lograron liberar a la ardilla. Siempre estaremos ahí para ir al rescate de quienes lo necesiten, ya sea que tengan dos piernas o cuatro”.

Squirrel Rescue

This is not an April Fools’ Day joke. We repeat…this is NOT an April Fools’ Day joke. Just before 7:30 on Tuesday evening, the A-shift crew from Engine 38 responded to a distraught 911 caller who had reported the case of a squirrel who had somehow managed to get his head lodged in the knothole of a tree and was unable to free himself. Whether squirrels have a “reverse” gear remains a mystery, but said squirrel had found himself with his front half stuck inside the interior of the tree while his back half remained unprotected. The caller was (rightly so) very concerned as the squirrel had apparently been there for some time; left unaided, he surely would have died a slow and unpleasant death, either from starvation, the elements, or a predator. Now, we’ve gotten lots of animals out of trees before, but this may be the first time we’ve literally gotten an animal OUT of a tree. And as you can see from the video, shot by Firefighter Austin Konopik, it was no easy feat. But Firefighter Steven Slaughter (that’s him, delicately handling the squirrel’s back half) would not be deterred; after a good two minutes of work, Steven and Firefighter Shane Burton managed to free the squirrel and send him on his way…we assume none the worse for wear since he didn’t stick around to offer so much as a “thank you”. But, that’s okay because that’s just what we do! We’re always going to be there to come to the rescue of those who need it, whether they’ve got two legs or four. #ourmissiongoesbeyondourname (Video credit: © Austin Fire Department/Firefighter Austin Konopik)
