Automotive service technicians came to the assistance of authorities in Ontario to rescue a dog found stuck in the engine compartment of a car.
Ottawa By-law & Regulatory Services said officers were summoned to the area near Moodie Drive and Barnsdale Road when a dog was found to have climbed into the engine compartment of a car in an apparent search for warmth.
“Officers tried for over an hour to free the dog, but were unsuccessful,” Ottawa By-law officials tweeted.
The car was towed to Barrhaven Honda, where service technicians put the vehicle onto a lift so it could be partially dismantled to reach the stuck dog.
The freed canine was taken to the Ottawa Humane Society.
