On Sunday morning, a dog that had been lost for days was spotted atop a 75 foot cliff near a waterfall in Elma, New York.
The Elma Dog Control Officer, Spring Brook Volunteer Fire Department and Erie County Sheriff’s Office sprang into action.
“We hoisted volunteer fireman D.J. Thompson about 10 to 15 feet up a rock face, where he was able to grab onto some trees and get his hands on the dog,” a fire official said.
“The animal is helpless. It can’t do anything for itself, and everyone involved was extremely happy to stick their neck out and help the animal and help the dog owner,” said the fire official.
