It’s not your typical everyday problem. Firefighters at Lathrop Manteca Fire District in California thought the 911 call was a prank at first. But Baby, a full-grown German Shepherd, really was stuck atop a tall tree. He’d chased a cat up the tree and couldn’t get down.
“…in my 10 years of experience of being in fire/EMS, that’s the first I heard of a dog in a tree,” firefighter Marty Ortiz told CBS News. Luckily, Ortiz was able to rescue Baby. The cat got down all by itself, unharmed.
