A BEAGLE PUPPY remains stuck down a mine shaft tonight, despite the efforts of local rescue units to remove it.

Three of the pup’s siblings were successfully rescued earlier.

The incident unfolded at a disused mine shaft between Leap and Glandore in west Cork this afternoon.

The Toe Head Coast Guard team was tasked with rescuing the stricken pups.

They managed to retrieve three by climbing down the 80ft shaft and bringing them to the surface using a bucket and rope.

A spokesperson said all were unharmed despite the significant fall.

However, one ran further into the shaft and couldn’t be rescued. Further attempts will be made again tomorrow to rescue the Beagle.

He’ll be okay, right? Please tell us he’ll be okay.
