[10] ANIMAL RESCUE – Cheesewring Quarry, Minions, Bodmin Moor, 23/02/2019 11:00 hrs

The team had been contacted about a sheep which had been stuck on a ledge since the middle of the week having been chased there by an out of control dog. Unable to escape the ledge, and with a 40 foot drop below it to boulders, a small team assembled to rescue it by lowering a team member down to its location. Once secured, the sheep was lifted off the ledge with the assistance of a safety rope and released back on to the moorland after a quick check over.

Please remember to keep your dog under effective control when around livestock.
