Members of the Punxsutawney Fire Department rescued a dog that had gotten himself on the ledge of the former train trestle abutment above the Mahoning Creek across from Elk Run Avenue, Punxsutawney. Hercules is pictured being rescued from the ledge by Central Fire Department Assistant Chief Pete Smith, along with Fire Captain Austin Pate and the dog's owner, Trail Beer, of Punxsutawney. According to reports, the dog followed someone who had jumped onto the ledge and decided to follow. There were no injuries. (Photo by Larry McGuire/The Punxsutawney Spirit)
