Dog rescued from cement plant bin

A dog has been rescued from a cement plant in Florida, after it was found hiding in a sand and stone bin.

Jerry Horch of Cement Industries says he believes the dog, named Oso, climbed up a conveyor belt and jumped into the bin.

He rescued Oso by "feeding him cheese" before lowering him to safety and passing him on to a local animal charity.

Ria Brown of Lee County Animal Services says a microchip implant had been found on Oso, and they were working on tracking down his owner.
