A couple from Cuffley have helped rescued a doctor’s dog with the promise of cheese.
Katie and Stephanie Ward-Bright, who live at and run Cuffley Outdoor Learning Centre, situated in 90 acres of woodland near Potters Bar, were awoken on Saturday to a fire engine at their gate.
Potters Bar fire service were trying to help doctor Elisabeth Rosser’s terrier, Patrick, who had got stuck down what they thought was a rabbit hole.
Stephanie said: “He was actually stuck in our huge 100-year-old badger set rather than a rabbit hole. The Potters Bar firemen reluctantly had to leave as laws prevent the disturbing of badger sets.
“After another hour of gentle coaxing, and the promise of cheese, [Patrick] eventually managed to crawl out – very dirty, slightly bloody around his mouth, possibly from badger interaction or pulling of his muzzle, and totally exhausted!
“He was reunited with his very relieved owner, a local doctor.”
