A news photographer in Michigan became part of the story recently when he rescued a dog stuck in a hole.
After local animal control officials tried to bait the dog out of a muddy hole, without success, a photojournalist from Grand Rapids put his camera down the hole to try and get a shot.
When the photographer realized the pup was within reach, he crawled in a little ways and simply snatched the little dacshund out to safety.
The dog was cold and hungry, but otherwise unhurt.
