EVANS, Colo. (AP) - Residents of the Weld County city of Evans are praising a police officer who helped rescue their dog, which had been trapped in a crawlspace under a nearby home.

The Greeley Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/1WpFB6q ) that Mike Linn’s 6-year-old dog Tanka got out after he left the gate to his home open and after four days he was sure she was gone for good. Evans Police Department’s community service technician Deidra Jesmer found the dog on May 18 after a neighbor called about hearing a crying animal under their home.

Jesmer, with help from the Evans Fire Protection District, was able to crawl under the home and hook a net around the dog, pulling her out.

Linn was cited for letting his dog out, but says the $55 fine is worth it to have his dog back.
