Animal Rescue

Volunteer firefighters were called out this morning to the 200 block of Parkview Dr for a family’s elderly pet dog who had fallen over the cliff side.  Once on scene volunteer firefighters and police were aided by a neighbor who knew the trail system of the cliff side behind the houses.  After a 10 minute hike down the trail they came to the area in which the dog was reported to be but was not visible nor barking anymore.  They started searching a very marshy area then followed by the sandy cliff side.   Searching the area was very difficult, sloppy, and muddy with over grown brush and downed limbs and sticks.  Luckily a neighbor up top with a keen eye spotted the dog wagging its tail through the brush and sticks and was able to guide the group to the dog.  The dog ended up being about 100 feet down a very steep sandy cliff side trapped in a small valley under some downed limbs unable to get up on its own.  The dog (Magic) was shaking and very scared.   Magic appeared uninjured and was freed from the valley within minutes of being spotted.  From there the dog was placed in a garbage tote which just happened to be in the area (the neighbor said the tote was his which had blown over the side years ago in a wind storm).   Firefighters, police and the neighbor took turns rolling the tote across the marsh, over several downed trees, and then back up the cliff side via the trail.  It took 40 minutes but finally Magic the dog was reunited to one very happy  family.
