Digital Daily: Minnesota terrier slides 150 feet down culvert, prompting rescue effort

Updated: August 16, 2019 03:51 PM

Bert Beyer and Lilly walk through Jay Cooke State Park in Carlton all the time, but Wednesday's walk was anything but ordinary.

Lilly was running around without her leash on when she slid over 150 feet into a culvert.


Beyer ran to the park patrol for help, but reinforcements from several towns had to work together to rescue Lilly.

The group used an excavator to dig down to the culvert, and then snaked a sewer camera down to find her.

They decided to attach a safety vest onto the camera and got it down to her, but volunteers said it was up to Lilly to figure out what to do next.

Fortunately, Lilly is now safe and sound thanks to a lot of teamwork, and she's had enough adventure for now.
