Wellfleet PD is very happy that Rigger was found in the marsh after being outside overnight. Rigger got free from his residence and didn’t return. Attempts to locate Rigger overnight weren’t successful. Wellfleet ACO was able to locate Rigger in the daylight stuck in the marsh. Wellfleet ACO and Officers worked together and was able to get Rigger to safety.

After being evaluated by our local vet, Rigger was returned to his home some safe and sound.

Thanks to all for your assistance.
