3 Pit Bulls Were Trapped In A Sewer, Their Rescue Will Make Your Heart Swell.

The circumstances of this story are a tough pill to swallow, but it's got a very, very happy ending. In Cocoa, Florida, police officers made an emergency rescue of not one, not two, but three pit bulls that were trapped in a sewer.

The police came to the rescue after hearing the dogs' cries. Thankfully, they were able to remove the storm grate entirely and pull the dogs to safety. It's unclear how long they were in there, and police are now faced with answering the troubling question of how they got there in the first place.

However, instead of lingering on the bad, let's focus on the good: All three dogs are in good health, and you can see their inspiring rescue story below.

A Cocoa police officer found three pit bulls huddled in a sewer drain on the side of the highway. Animal Services is caring for the dogs and trying to find the owners. Watch the heartwarming rescue:
