Guard dogs rescued from frozen canal after escaping through broken security fencing

Guard dogs rescued from frozen canal after escaping through broken security fencing
The danger of broken security fencing has been highlighted after two guard dogs escaped through panels at a scrapyard in Manchester and had to be rescued from a frozen canal.

According to the Manchester Evening News, the Rottweilers broke onto the Rochdale Canal, off the A62 Oldham Road in Failsworth.

Passers-by close to a bridge running over the canal spotted the dogs and called the fire service with crews from Hollins and Chadderton being dispatched to help.

Inaccurate reports initially suggested a man had ventured onto the canal to rescue the dogs, which were coaxed back, unharmed.

A spokesperson for the fire service told the newspaper the dogs had escape through broken security fencing.

Earlier this year, a tiger at a zoo in Miami, Florida, US, vaulted a 12ft fence into a crowd of visitors.

The unusual incident happened because the animal had been goaded by a passing baboon that had escaped from its cage. The primate was hopping around on visitors' heads, taunting the tiger.ADNFCR-3337-ID-800312339-ADNFCR
