His name may be Jester, but his predicament was no joke. Poor Jester found himself straddled across a gate in England and it took firemen and heavy lifting gear to get him free.
Jester, 4, escaped the frightening ordeal with a few scrapes and he was back on his feet when the firefighters left.
Shropshire Fire and Rescue Service were called early on Saturday evening to Valeswood Lane, Little Ness, to help free Jester, who appeared to have made an unsuccessful attempt to jump the steel gate.
Fire trucks were sent to the scene from Baschurch and Wellington, which included specialist animal rescue personnel. A vet was at the scene.
Jester was sedated before a piece of heavy-lifting equipment was used to hoist him clear of the gate.
Jester escaped the ordeal with cuts, grazes and bruises from his own attempts to scramble free.
