Fire Department Removes Stray Dog from Refrigerator

A family in Yuma, Arizona, called the Humane Society about a stray dog in their refrigerator. But they got a faster response from the local fire department. Yuma Fire Department spokesman Mike Erfert said the terrier-type dog was on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator and wouldn't let anyone near.
Erfert said the apartment's residents told firefighters that the dog was a stray and that it rushed into their apartment when they opened their front door. They said they tried to catch the dog but, every time they tried, the dog would snap at them and attempt to bite them.

Unable to catch the dog, Erfert said they then planned to lure it outside using some food, but when they opened the refrigerator door, the dog jumped inside and they couldn't get the dog to come out.

Firefighters wore protective suits as they extracted the dog. An animal control officer took the dog, which was later reunited with its owner. -via Arbroath

Did somebody put their dog in the refrigerator, took a picture and then made up this story?
Because I have a very hard time believing any of this.
It's not as if newspapers check their sources these days.
