(AP) A pit bull is trapped at the bottom of a pumping station near a New Orleans levee. Rescuers joined by a Louisiana prison inmate are frantically seeking to pull the dog out. This is real-life drama and TV 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.


Torres runs the nation's largest pit bull rescue center, which pairs the dogs with parolees who care for them.
