Donkey pulled from septic by firefighters
A MINIATURE donkey was rescued during a two hour mission by firefighters after becoming stuck in a septic tank north of Brisbane last night.
The donkey, believed to be 5-years-old, has stunned firefighters on how it managed to become entrapped in the tank.
Firefighters received the call at around 6:10pm and headed straight to the address on Beaujolais Ct and Homestead Rd at Morayfield.
Four fire crews worked tirelessly on scene to rescue the animal, using a tripod and rope to winch the donkey to safety - a mission that took roughly two hours to complete.
A Queensland Fire and Emergency Service media spokesman said firefighters had to cut grass and shrubs around the septic tank for easier access to the animal.
By about 8:10pm the donkey had been winched to safety.
Firefighters left the scene while the animal was being washed clean by its owners, and fed a carrot.
