FREMONT, Calif. (AP) - California firefighters rappelled down a steep ravine to rescue a days-old horse that was trapped for two days with a broken pelvis.

The San Jose Mercury News reports (https://bayareane.ws/1WpC04O ) that the horse is less than a week old and is recovering.

The colt, dubbed Valentine because it was rescued on the holiday, was stranded in a pool of water when animal control officers and firefighters fished him out Sunday.

Valentine will be taken to the University California at Davis for surgery. The operation will cost about $10,000, and the Tri-City Animal Shelter is taking donations to cover the cost.

Police are investigating how the colt got down the ravine.
