The small Chihuahua had pursued the rabbit all the way into a storm drain, where he was ultimately trapped.

The called Animal Service Officers were, unfortunately, unable to open the heavy metal grate under which the black dog was without additional outside help, so employees from Broomfield Public Works and Utility Services came in to help rescue the pup!
