    How far down is that? Is it super mushy like total mud, or is it a bit more solid?

    Can you find someone who maybe does mantience around there who may have a ladder? Something needs to be put over top of that once the babies are rescued.

    And it's going to be dark soon and I still have two more drop offs before my shift is done. I hate this....
