Ruff day as Qld police discover ‘trapped puppy’ is actually a frog

Queensland Police were called to assist with a serious rescue this morning, however it turns out their damsel in distress was not who they expected.

Around 8.30am, RSPCA officers were called to Botanic Crescent at Brookwater following reports of a dog trapped in a storm water drain.

“We’re helping & to rescue a dog trapped in a storm water drain at Botanic Cres at Brookwater. We can hear it but can’t see it,” Qld Police tweeted.


However Qld Fire and Rescue, the RSPCA and Qld Police soon discovered their victim was nothing more than a loud croaking frog – whoops!

In true QPS style, they took to twitter updating the community on the outcome with a hilarious image of a pug in a frog costume.
