Dog Rescued From Crevice in Santa Monica



    (Published Monday, Feb. 16, 2015)

    A squirrel outfoxed a mutt that became stuck in a cliff crevice and had to be rescued by firefighters Monday afternoon, high above the beach in Santa Monica.

    Smoky, the 80-pound mutt, was at the park with his owner when he spotted the swift-moving critter and chased it into some bushes.

    Next thing it knew it became lodged in a crevice and had to be hoisted to safety by two Santa Monica firefighters atop a ladder. The drama took place on a cliff at the edge of Pacific Coast Highway, and it was all caught on camera by Newschopper4.
