WILSON SAID LITTLE RICHARD is trapped by his in a hilside outcropping of huge rocks, some 30 feet high. The rocky pile, he said, is interlaced by small crevasses not large enough for the dog to get out or permit anyone to get to him. "He either fell or jumped from atop the Wilson .reported. "He is held pretty tight and can't move very much." The dog's publicized predicament brought Wilson help. Some blasting was done Saturday but was halted for fear of harming the animal. About 50 persons, among them veterinarians and Humane Society workers, gathered at the spot while a utility company crew used a jackhammer trying to widen a crevasse. They succeeded in opening one about four inches wide, exposing the dog. "We marie some progress and I can get within about four feet of him said Wilson. "He knows me, whines at me." A FIRE DEPARTMENT HOSE was run among the rocks to provide the trapped animal some water. Wilson said he was advised not to attempt to feed him that the thinner he stays the better the chances of saving him. Wilson says Little Richard is "a good 'coon dog, worth about "But that isn't the issue at the youth said. "We've had him since he was a puppy.
