The two had been hunting rabbits where they live in Australia and Jesse decided to chase a cat instead. He ended up 11 feet underground stuck under a layer of rocks. When Porter couldn’t get his friend loose, he called Australia’s emergency service to help.
As much as they tried, the emergency service crew couldn’t get Jessie loose either, but were able to send her down bits of liver to feed her by sticking them on the end of a long wire and pushing them down to her. It took the efforts of a special rock breaking truck that Porter hired from Melbourne to get Jessie free after a week of trying it other ways.
Porter told the news crews that he did it because Jesse was his best friend and he thought he owed it to her to get her out. He added, “It would have been easy to just say, oh well, and let her die, but we decided instead to give it a go to get her out, and we did!”
Jessie knew her friend wouldn’t let her down. As soon as she was loose, she jumped up and kissed Porter’s face. Jessie is reported to be in fine health even after her week underground. And it’s a sure thing that Porter won’t be letting her chase cats anytime in the near future.
