cliff rescue of dog from helicopterA dog that got stuck on cliff high above Portugese Beach in Sonoma County, Calif. was rescued Saturday afternoon after a sheriff’s deputy dangling from a helicopter plucked it off a sheer rock face and returned it unharmed to its owner.

The black and white Labrador named Oreo somehow made her way about 40 feet down a 90-foot high cliff, where there was no way of return.

Deputy Henri Boustany attached himself to the bottom of a 100-foot rope strung from the helicopter and was lifted to the ledge where the dog was waiting.
