Firefighters rescued 8 puppies from a sewer, but it turned out they weren’t puppies at all

The fire department, run by Brian Vaughan, received a call. The caller reported that there were 8 puppies in the storm drain, but he could not get them out on his own, he needed help, otherwise the babies would die. The man was able to see the black labrador pups, most likely, they were left in the gutter by indifferent owners.

The fire brigade took the call and immediately went to the place. In 20 minutes they managed to get the puppies out. Fortunately, no one was hurt, all were unharmed.

The only thing that confused the rescuers was the fact that they did not at all resemble dog pups.

“The puppies were taken to an animal rescue organization, located in the vicinity of Pikes Peak Mountain. Already after being examined by a veterinarian, it was discovered that they were newborn fox cubs.

Travis Sauder, director of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, says foxes are common residents in their area. And they often choose inappropriate shelters, such as sewer manholes, to breed.

After deliberation, the experts decide to bring the “find” back and wait for the return of the mother. If she does not, they will be sent to a rehabilitation center for wild animals.

And here is a short video of the rescue operation.
