Here is another example of an incident that starts off sad because it involves harm to an animal, but has a happy ending.

A horse in Orangevale, Calif., had somehow gotten his leg stuck in a bathtub used as a food trough and it was stuck there for 25 minutes, The Associated Press reported.

Luckily, Phantom's owner was able to call the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District and it sent firefighters to help save the horse.

"With a little help, and a lot of hands, Phantom is back on his feet," the fire department said in a tweet.

It's sad to see bad things to happen to an animal, but at least this story had a happy ending.
