Texas: Cedar Hill Animal Control and Patrol Officers save Great Dane stuck halfway under fence

TEXAS -- If this Great Dane could talk, it would probably say "thank you" to the Dallas-area officer who saved it from a menacing wooden fence.

The Cedar Hill Police Department posted video of one of its officers responding to an animal welfare call on Sunday.

The Animal Control officer, seen here, was already
on-scene when the Police officer arrived.

For some reason the article is making it seem like a police officer is the only one who was involved. Clearly, when you watch the video you can see an Animal Control officer who was there first and called the officer for assistance in rescuing the dog. They both deserve credit.

Footage showed a dog had somehow wedged itself underneath wooden fence. Police said the dog had been stuck for an hour.

The homeowner was reportedly out of town, and the caretaker was an hour away. The officer used a screwdriver to remove the individual fence pickets to free the dog.

The video ends with the dog being able to scoot
back inside the privacy fence. 

Great Danes are one of the tallest dog breeds around. Zeus, the last Guinness Book of World Record holder, stretched 7 feet and 5 inches tall.
