A pit bull is trapped at the bottom of a pumping station near a New Orleans levee. Rescuers joined by a Louisiana prison inmate out on work release are frantically seeking to pull the dog to safety. This is real-life drama and the television cameras are rolling.
Tia Maria Torres, star of Animal Planet's "Pit Bulls and Parolees," has moved her long-running reality TV series from southern California to New Orleans, where hurricanes and overbreeding have left many pit bulls abandoned or abused. Not to mention, she will have to contend with the blood sport of dog-fighting, a scourge in Louisiana and illegal in every state. (AP)
