Puppies Rescued from Yucca Valley Tortoise Den

Sunday San Bernardino County Fire crews were requested for a unique public service call in Yucca Valley. Two curious five month old puppies had made their way into a tortoise den and were unable to exit due to a 100 ln tortoise blocking their exit. Residents were worried as the dogs had been in the den for multiple hours and were silent.

#SBCoFD ME42 & MA42 arrived to find a large underground tortoise den with two puppies inside and a 100lb tortoise blocking the exit. Firefighters attempted to coax Oscar, a large desert tortoise from its den, so firefighters could get to the puppies. Crews used a tasty watermelon treat to attempt to coax the tortoise from the den. The tasty watermelon trick was unsuccessful & firefighters went to plan B, digging.

With Oscar blocking the exit, crews worked to dig an access hole to rescue the dogs. After an hour of digging crews were able to get the puppies out of the den. “Peo” and “Finn”, were unharmed & happy to reunite with their dog mom Kathleen.

We are glad we could assist with this unique call & there was such a positive outcome!
