A dog stuck in the mud was reunited with its owner thanks to an observant citizen and helpful police officers.

On Thursday, Sept. 27 at 8:20 a.m., members of the Williams Lake RCMP detachment received a request for assistance from a resident on Clear Road when she observed a dog stuck in the mud and unable to free itself behind her residence.

Police attended and were able to free the dog from the mud by lying down a path of logs creating a path for the dog to pull itself out and use the logs to get out of the mud.

The dog was very cold and muddy but otherwise OK.

The dog and its owner were reunited.
