Horse Rescued From Mud Hole In Oregon

Posted: Updated:

Salem, OR-Oregon fire crews responded to a call of a trapped horse on Sunday.

Marion County fire officials say the horse, Missy, was apparently walking in an area of high brush and grass when she fell off the embankment landing in a shallow creek.

Missy was trapped in mud and water that created a quick-sand type ground.

Fire crews tried to rescue the horse, but were unsuccessful.

That’s when the horse's owner, Robert Alexander Jr., contacted a friend who was able to bring a front-end loader and heavy-duty lifting straps to lift the horse out of the mud.

There is no update on the condition of Missy.
