MARION, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Marion Fire rescued a horse and a mule that were stuck in the mud over the weekend.

Firefighters responded to Merrow Farm on Converse Road Sunday around 5 p.m. A mule, named Girlie, and a horse, named Tick, were found submerged in the mud.

Both animals were having difficulty breathing because they were buried so deep. Firefighters worked to dig them out reduce pressure on the animals before using tools, like pulleys, to get them out.
