DELAWARE CITY, Del. (AP) - Firefighters in Delaware have twice been summoned in two days to rescue a 2,000-pound Clydesdale horse from various predicaments.
Owner Pam Collacchi tells The News Journal that Bubba "doesn't realize how big he is." On Sunday, Bubba wandered around 25 feet into a creek, becoming mired in near-freezing mud.
Wetsuit-clad rescuers from the Delaware City Fire Company pulled Bubba closer to the bank. Firefighters then tugged hoses strapped around his legs and a truck. Bubba had to be sedated, but was eventually pulled to safety.
