Brutus, a horse that had fallen into an 8-foot sinkhole, awaits rescue.

HOOPER, Utah -- Weber County Animal Services needed to call in some heavy equipment to rescue a horse trapped in a sinkhole.

Brutus fell into an 8-foot hole that had opened during a rainstorm Monday in Hooper, Utah. The horse had his neck pinned to one side and had little visibility.

Neighbors used heavy-duty machinery and officers used straps to carefully hoist the horse out of the hole.

Brutus was unharmed after his removal.
