Two dogs were rescued alive from a pit they were found in on Monday afternoon in the Larnaca area, police told the Cyprus Mail.

The two dogs were found in a 17-metre pit used to deposit carcasses of other animals from a livestock farm.

A large-scale operation occurred at an animal farm in Kalo Chorio early afternoon on Monday to retrieve the dogs, police told the Cyprus Mail.

Authorities arrived there following a tip-off earlier on the day. During the operation, it was deemed necessary to contact the health authorities to take the necessary measures so that firefighters can safely retrieve the animals.

Reports also suggested that a few days prior, the owner of the unit has complained over stray dogs that attacked and killed goats in his farm.

The two dogs that were taken out of the pit were given to the veterinary services, who said that the dogs seemed fine on initial examination.
