PHOTO - Cats aren’t the only pets that get stuck in trees. Just ask the firefighters who rescued a Great Dane from a high bough in rural Louisville, Nebraska, late Saturday night. “You’re not going to believe this,” one Plattsmouth firefighter said to another after receiving the call for help about 10:10 p.m. “They said there’s a 125-pound Great Dane stuck 20 feet up in a tree.” They weren’t the first in disbelief. Wes McGuirk, the dog’s owner, couldn’t believe his ears and eyes when, after searching his home, yard, barn and garage for his dog, Kora, he heard a soft whining from above. McGuirk said he pointed his flashlight up the tree, “and there she was, like a little owl perched in a tree, with her eyes looking at me.” “Yep, my Great Dane is in a tree,” he thought. He and his friends had to get cellphone pictures.
