When a 10-week-old puppy got his head stuck in a cornhole board, his family tried their best to free him - but nothing worked. That's when they turned to the police.

FAIR OAKS RANCH, Texas — Normally an "ace in the hole" is a good thing, but not this time. Meet a 10-week-old puppy named Ace who became trapped in a cornhole board.

Ace's owner said he got into some trouble while gardening outside with his family on Friday – somehow managing to get his little head stuck in one of the several holes in a wooden cornhole board.

His family in Fair Oaks Ranch tried everything they could do to free him before calling the police.

"We had an Ace in the hole!!!" Leslie wrote. "We called our local heroes at the Fair Oaks Ranch Police Department and in moments Officer Michael Maddox was on the scene followed shortly by Officer Amanda Hinojosa. It took a few minutes to formulate a plan and the officers sprung into action. With two of us holding Ace and Officer Maddox using his superior saw skills, Ace was liberated from the evil hole. Thanks to Officer Maddox and Officer Hinojosa for coming to Ace’s aid."
