Dog, Trapped In Cave, Found Safe And Sound

A Russell County dog's owner says he's lucky today.

His coon hound, Homer, apparently fell into a sink hole which then led to a cave this weekend. The dog wasn't seen for several days, but was wearing a GPS collar when he disappeared.

Some cavers made it within 50 yards of Homer but said it was just too dangerous to go any further inside the cave.

They were hoping Homer would find another way out of the cave and he did! A searcher spotted him and Homer was reunited with his owner on Monday afternoon.
