TUMALO, OR -- A horse was rescued from a Tumalo-area cattle guard, Tuesday morning, thanks to help from Bend Fire, the Sheriff’s office and Bend Equine Medical Center.
When the first team arrived at the cattle guard on High Mowing Lane, they found the horse had three legs trapped. They sedated the animal, and crews used the jaws of life to get the horse out. At last report, it did not appear to have any obvious fractures.
Bend Fire officials call the incident an example of the "broad spectrum of emergencies that Bend Fire and Rescue meets everyday." They thanked Bend Equine Medical Center for their teamwork and their "prompt and professional response."
