The Wingecarribee SES Unit has been called to rescue a dog from inside a tree trunk in East Bowral.
It's believed the Terrier, named ' PIPPA ' was chasing a rabbit up a tree when a section of rotting trunk collapsed, trapping her about five meters inside.
Volunteers had to work quickly in fading light.
Unit Commander Heather Rowe says it was one of the more satisfying jobs they've attended to recently.
Crews were also called to a couple of nasty crashes in the days prior.
