Missing Dog Rescued From Sinkhole At The Arboretum

Penn State caught “all the feels” Wednesday morning, according to an Instagram caption — and rightfully so. Skye, a golden retriever, was rescued from a sinkhole in the Arboretum.

Skye went missing on Monday and wasn’t rescued until Wednesday morning, however it’s not clear how long she was stuck in the sinkhole. The rescue featured a team of people using ropes and a makeshift pulley to haul Skye out of what appears to be a pretty deep sinkhole. As soon as she cleared the entrance her tail was wagging at full speed.

Watch the full video of the rescue courtesy of our friends at OPP.
