Mule rescued from creek in Dacula

Posted: Updated:

A mule in Dacula found itself in hot water, Saturday evening, after it became stuck in a creek.

A 911 caller stated the animal had entered a creek and got its front two legs stuck in thick mud. 

Once a technical crew arrived, they were able to free the animal utilizing a fire hose and a rescue rope. Firefighters placed the fire hose and rope underneath the chest area and placed personnel on both sides. As the crews began to pull, the animal moved its legs until it was free.

The mule did have a minor injury to one of its legs. It has been returned to its owner.
