Ha, how funny! I'm glad he was ok. Maybe try to feed him before you remove the log to lure him out. Then, when he's eating grab it.

20 gallon long: 3 adult Neolamprologus similis + about 11 fry of various ages; low light planted tank
20 gallon long:2 freshwater dwarf puffers (Puff Puff and Poofer); medium-light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Wormy; low light planted tank
10 gallon: 1 male betta named Dante; low light planted tank
2, 5.5 gallon tanks that are currently empty (I see more fish on the horizon )

I rigged up a strand of led lights for my tank. My cats will only come out at night, but now I can watch them. (not that they do anything to exciting)
