Monroe Township, Indiana – This week, a spooked horse who wound up in neck-deep mud, was rescued. The Monroe Township Fire Department said that the horse, Arlo, ended up in the muddy rap area of Wilcox Lake. The agency said:
Poor Arlo sank up to his neck in mud and water and was unable to get himself out.
Arlo’s owners called 911 and Clark County Deputies responded and then requested Monroe Township FD. The agency outlined how they freed Arlo from his muddy trap, writing:
Utilizing a variety of equipment including backboards, webbing, straps, rope, and the power winch line from R21, all personnel worked together to free Arlo from the suction of the deep mud.
After Arlo was freed, he got himself up, ate some food, then posed for a photo.
On Wednesday, the fire department got an update from Arlo’s owner, Allison:
