Trees, of course, are supposed to have bark — but not quite like this.
A pair of off-duty troopers from the Kentucky State Police were helping to mow a cemetery lawn on Thursday when they heard what sounded like a dog in distress emanating from a forested area close by, so they decided to investigate. At first, they had trouble locating the source of the noise, and it soon became clear why.
The dog who'd been making all that racket was literally trapped inside the trunk of a tree. His name was Rocco, and his little pup face was all that poked through.
