Bystander Solves The Mystery Behind A Dog’s Strange Storm Drain Obsession

Published: Jan 04, 2023

Having one dog was enough for Dave. But when he saw a mysterious German shepherd standing by a storm drain, he could not help but find out if the dog needed help. Afterall, he knows that dogs are man’s best friend. They are loyal and reliable companions.

As it turns out, his instinct was right. Dave was correct about the German shepherd needing help. But he could not possibly do everything on his own.

The Mysterious Dog

Dave was minding his own business while out walking his dog when he noticed a German shepherd standing by and looking into a storm drain. He didn’t think much of it at first, but when the same dog was there the next day, he grew curious.

As he got closer, he heard noises coming from the drain. Dave knew he couldn’t open the drain himself, so he quickly called emergency services to come and open the drain. He also could not figure out what was making all that noise.

Fire Truck Comes To The Rescue

A fire truck quickly arrived at the scene, equipped with the necessary tools to open the storm drain. The noises coming from inside the drain grew louder as the rescuers worked. Dave was eager to find out what was trapped inside.

Unfortunately, the authorities told him they had closed off the area around the drain for safety reasons. They had to keep everyone away once they lifted the drain cover. Authorities didn’t want anyone getting hurt, especially since no one had any idea what was underneath.

Totally Unexpected

Dave had no idea what was happening–especially why they suddenly called him for questioning. The authorities asked him what was going on after they secured the German shepherd. Dave was surprised and could not figure out why he was being treated like a suspect.

Still, he did his best to answer their questions. His curiosity was further piqued when he saw a white tent being set up around the storm drain out of the corner of his eye. He couldn’t believe what was happening. 

A Trip To The Police Station

Dave was placed in a police cruiser and told that he needed to comply with the officers’ requests. He knew resisting would not be in his best interests, and thus he obeyed everything the police ordered him to do.

On the way to the police station, the officers told Dave they needed to question him about what they had discovered in the storm drain. Dave couldn’t help but feel he was being accused of wrongdoing. He knew he did not break any laws, but why was he being treated as if he did?

Clearing His Name

As they arrived at the police station, Dave saw that the German shepherd was also being brought in. He had no idea what was happening or why he and the dog were being questioned, but he was determined to clear his name.

Dave complied with the officers’ requests, hoping that he could shed some light on the mysterious situation. Also, his purpose was to provide truthful answers. He had no reason to lie, yet he was anxious to find out what was transpiring. He was desperate to prove his innocence.

Answering Questions

Dave was questioned by officers the instant he was seated in the room. During the interrogation, Dave had the impression that the authorities believed he was the owner of the German shepherd.

However, Dave insisted that he only owned one dog.  He did his best to explain the situation, yet the officers continued to be skeptical. Dave didn’t know how else to explain his side of the story–it was the only truth he knew. He couldn’t understand why they thought he had something to do with the strange events at the storm drain.

Confronting Officers’ Assumptions

The police officers told Dave they had examined street cameras and saw him interacting with the German shepherd and the storm drain everyday. The authorities did not have any leads, but they wouldn’t tell Dave what they had found inside the sewer.

However, they gathered more information by asking him to walk them through his day–as Dave was the one who had called emergency services. He started to recount his day for them, hoping it would help clear things up. The officers listened intently, taking notes and asking follow-up questions as they tried to piece together what had happened.

Recounting The Events of The Day

Dave told the officers that he had never heard the noises coming from the storm drain before and that they must have been new. He described the occasional shrieking and the soft but continuous thumping he had heard. He also mentioned that his own dog had stopped and seemed to sense something was wrong.

Dave was surprised to see the officers paying such close attention to his description of the noises. It seemed as though they were unsure of exactly what they had encountered and were trying to piece together clues. Dave couldn’t understand why they were so interested, but he hoped his information might help them solve the mystery.

No One Cared

Dave told the officers that he had started looking around to see if the dog’s owner was nearby. The dog had been staring into the storm drain for several days by this point, and Dave sensed that something was going on. However, no one else seemed to care.

Dave found it especially odd that the German shepherd was neither responding to his presence nor to the attention of bystanders. He couldn’t figure out if the dog had fallen asleep or if it was ignoring him. He could not understand the cause of the dog’s strange behavior.

He Sensed There Was A Problem

Dave felt a strong urge to leave the area and take his own dog with him, but the animal resisted and refused to budge. Dave found himself standing in the middle of the street, surrounded by the German shepherd and his own dog, feeling disoriented and lost.

He started to spin in circles as if he were hallucinating, attracting the attention of many passing pedestrians. The stares of the strangers made Dave feel uneasy and self-conscious. Finally, he decided to pay attention to his own dog and try to move away from the storm drain.

Taking Action

As Dave tried to focus on the storm drain and listen more carefully to the noises coming from inside, he could hear them more clearly. However, even when he squinted and tried to see into the darkness below, he couldn’t make out anything distinctly.

He was certain that someone or something was in danger and needed help, but he couldn’t understand why no one else seemed to realize this. Dave felt obligated to do something about the situation, even though he wasn’t sure what he could do. He knew he had to take action to address the perceived threat.

Getting Help And Attention

Dave told the officers that he had tried to lift the cover of the storm drain by himself, but it wouldn’t budge. He used a metal stick he found nearby as a lever, but it was no use. The pipe was clearly corroded and wouldn’t move. As Dave looked around, he saw that a few other people who had been watching from a distance were now approaching him.

More and more people were starting to hear the unsettling sounds coming from the sewer and were beginning to pay attention. When a few others seemed just as determined as Dave to help, he felt a moment of relief. He wasn’t alone in his mission to rescue whatever was trapped inside.

Strength In Unity

As Dave and the other helpers struggled to lift the cover of the storm drain, a store owner appeared with a crowbar. Within a few minutes, a group of four men had formed, each armed with a metal lever. Despite their best efforts, the cover wouldn’t budge.

Just as he was about to give up, one of the onlookers noticed the phone number of the manufacturing company printed on the lid of the pipe. Dave quickly pulled out his phone and called the company. To his surprise, someone answered on the other end.

Boo To Bureaucracy

Unfortunately, Dave did not receive the response he had hoped for. The person he was communicating with suggested he seek approval from the city instead. This setback caught Dave off guard, but he decided not to involve the authorities due to the lengthy bureaucratic process required.

He knew the lengthy and frustrating bureaucratic process would take more time than necessary. Whatever may be inside the drain might have already perished by the time the proper approval could be received. He had to take matters into his own hands.

An Answer He Didn’t Want To Hear

Dave realized that he needed to take action if he wanted to achieve his goal. He contacted a towing company owner he knew. He explained the situation and hoped they had the tools needed to uncover the drain.

However, the owner of the towing company had a different idea and insisted on involving the police. Dave had to come up with a plan. In order to justify calling the emergency services, he needed a good reason–since he could be slapped with a large fine if it was discovered there was really nothing in the storm drain.

Feeling Hopeless

The owner of the towing company was hesitant to interfere with government property, but Dave was determined. He was no longer concerned about the risks–his main focus was on entering the sewage system.

Dave was also fed up as he noticed that the German shepherd had been standing still the entire time. Even if he tried to move the dog, it would resist and even turn hostile toward him. This was the final straw for Dave–he knew he had to find another solution.

Calling The Fire Department

After considering his options, Dave decided to call the fire department and tell them that there were creatures trapped in the sewage system. When the firefighters arrived and asked how he knew this, Dave told them that his German shepherd had been able to smell them.

However, this story ended up getting Dave into trouble, and he was later detained. It seemed that Dave had no choice but to lie to the fire department. Doing so was easier to get them to remove the drain cover and save whatever creatures were inside it.

Help Finally Arrives

Dave heard the arrival of the fire department and watched as the firefighters went to work. They seemed to be experienced in this type of work and didn’t even acknowledge Dave as they got into position to remove the drain cover.

With a little bit of effort, they were able to break through the rust and make the initial movement to remove the obstacle. It was not clear what the obstacle was or how it was related to Dave’s earlier attempts to enter the sewage system. All Dave knew was that a large part of the problem had now finally been solved.

The Sounds Became Louder

The street was awash with a slew of noisy screeches coming from deep in the pipe. Still, no one could determine what was making those noises. More people gathered curiously around the storm drain.

Facing The Abyss

After the sewer was successfully opened, the next step was to send someone down to inspect it. Though everyone was curious, no one was courageous enough to find out what the strange noises were.

Dave tried to look around and saw that most people were hesitant to volunteer for the task. A lot of them stayed back and kept their distance. They preferred to watch someone do the hard work instead of stepping up to perform the difficult job themselves.

Safety Was The Priority

Even the firefighters were reluctant to go down the sewer. Dave was informed by one such firefighter that his colleagues were unwilling to descend due to their lack of experience in such a unique situation. They also did not want to risk the safety of their team.

In the end, it was decided that a specialist was necessary. However, Dave disagreed with this decision and felt that he was capable of completing the task. Despite the lack of support from the authorities and the inherent danger of the mission, Dave was determined to see it through. He knew someone had to inspect the sewer and he was willing to take on the challenge.
