FLAGLER COUNTY, Fla.—Well that stinks.

A large crew of first responders, aid workers and veterinarians worked together Tuesday afternoon to free a horse that got stuck in a septic tank in Flagler County, says the St. Johns County Fire Rescue's Facebook page.

In what has to be one of the strangest stories involving a septic tank in Flagler County, crews took about one and a half hours to free the horse, would only ended up with minor injuries.


People from the Flagler and St. Johns County Fire Rescue, the Flagler County Sheriff's Office and the University of Florida College of Veterinary Medicine all responded to find a horse stuck in muck up to his neck in a septic tank.

Crews ended up having to cut more parts of the tank off before sedating it to get the horse out.

Fire officials admitted the event was rare. We have no word on how the horse got stuck in there.
