    Firefighters Save Donkey Trapped in Well

    UNDERWOOD, Minn. (AP) -- A donkey is happily eating grass again after falling down a dry, abandoned well and being freed in an intensive rescue effort. It appeared that the animal wandered away from its farm and onto some boards covering the well, which broke, said Bruce Huseth, fire chief in this western Minnesota town.
    Firefighters quickly realized that the animal, which belongs to farmer Warren Gundberg, couldn't just be pulled from the abandoned well on Bryan Nelson's land.
    So they started pulling away earth with a tractor and dismantling the well block by block Thursday. Once one wall had been taken apart, firefighters put a harness around the donkey and guided it out with a rope.
    "Whatever it takes," Nelson said as he watched his well come down. "I love animals, and I'm just glad it's OK."
    Gundberg admonished the animal http://hosted.ap.org/dynamic/stories...=ENTERTAINMENT

    So glad they were able and willing to save this creature. I'm such a pushover for animals.
