Rescuers still trying to help SC dog stuck in pipe

Updated:

SENECA, S.C. - A rescue group is still trying to help save a dog that has its head stuck in a segment of pipe for several days.

Upstate Animal Rescue of South Carolina said on its Facebook page that volunteers set up traps to capture the dog Saturday, but gunfire in the remote area scared the dog and it ran away.

The group says it will try again on Sunday to rescue the dog nicknamed Piper.

The dog is scared of people and won't let anyone near it. A veterinarian thinks the dog can drink, but can't eat because the pipe will barely let it open its mouth.

Upstate Animal Rescue says it will try to set up the traps again so a veterinarian can sedate the dog and remove the pipe.
