Boris Patterdale Rescued

What a night!!! Had a call to say this little guy was underground under a shed stuck with a concrete slab floor on top of him. So out we went armed with a pick axe and a crow bar. When we got there we realised how bad the situation was so called the fire brigade. But he was making awful noises at this point and looking like he couldn’t breathe properly. So nick tried to lift the concrete floor. As he did a paw moved and then he knew he couldnt put it down. But the concrete was on top of him wedging his pelvis and pulling him wasn’t moving him. But as the little monkey tried to claw his way out nick found some unknown adrenaline and strength and managed to move the whole thing up higher so he could just be pulled free. Thankfully rescuing him before the fire crew were needed so we could call them off, but so grateful they agreed to assist. We think he dug underneath hunting small animals and the floor collapsed a bit. Certainly one of the most intense rescues in a while. Boris who only has one eye due to a previous incident of going down a badger hole is doing really well and seems pretty unaffected by his ordeal.
