A miniature donkey caused a bad smell after falling into a large septic tank, which led to a challenging rescue north of Brisbane.

Firefighters were called to an estate in Morayfield on Thursday evening after the panicked owners called to say that their donkey had fallen into the concrete trough and was locked in place.

Officers had to deal with a sticky and smelly situation and had to think carefully about how to drag the animal out without hurting it.

After the tank was pumped dry, they used a large tripod to support the slings that slid gently over the belly of the donkey.

Shortly thereafter the beloved beast was out, happily munching on roots and apparently unharmed.

& # 39; He did fine. We were actually a bit surprised, & # 39; Caboolture fire officer Scott Marles told the ABC on Friday.

& # 39; The owners had carrots there … Except that it was a bit cold and a bit smelly, he still had (a) full appetite. & # 39;

Mr. Marles said the donkey was lucky to have survived, with only his head above the dark mess when help arrived.

& # 39; Apparently, donkeys are notorious for getting into trouble & # 39 ;, he said.

& # 39; They just had a bit of coverage over the top of the septic tank, made of fiberglass or something similar. He kicked that out and he fell into it.
