The owner of a horse who fell into a deep sink hole has thanked the firefighters who “saved his life”.
Grey gelding ‘Buzz’ became trapped in the hole in his field in Smithams Hill, East Harptree, last week (24 February).
Firefighters were called to Buzz’s field after his owners became aware of his dangerous predicament.
Three crews attended the incident from Bedminster and Chew Magna.
Buzz was sedated by a vet so that he could be safely removed from the hole using animal rescue equipment.
“On behalf of my family, I would like to thank all the firefighters who came to the rescue of our fantastic horse Buzz,” said owner Nigel Sommerfield following the rescue.
“They all showed great team work and skill and certainly saved his life.”
“All the signs are that he has come through the ordeal unscathed undoubtedly helped by the speed with which the team managed to get him out,” he added.
