MARSHALL COUNTY, Okla. -- It was a quite a dramatic scene near Madill Thursday morning when a dog fell in a roadside hole along Highway 70. The sheriff's office, the Madill Police Department, and the dog catcher all responded to the call.
The hole, right along Highway 70 in Oakland right on the edge of Madill, is at least nine-feet deep, without any barriers or warning signs.
The dog fell in sometime overnight, and it was quite the ordeal to get him out.
"I heard barking in that hole--it’s been open for two days. I've been afraid a kid would fall in and couldn't possibly get out of that hole. A grown person can not get out of that hole"" Gary Minor, of nearby business Minor Printing, said.
The Madill Police Department is trying to figure out whose dog it is. Call the Madill Police Department at 580-795-2387 if you have any information.
As for the hole, it's still there, and it is still unmarked.
