Animal rescuers in California rescued a deaf dog from 100-foot ravine
Animal rescuers in California came to the aid of a deaf dog who fell 100 feet into a ravine near his family's property.
The San Diego Humane Society said in a Facebook post that an officer responded Monday when the 8-year-old Australian Shepherd, named Hobo, fell into the ravine while a fence was being built around his family's house.
The officer climbed down to reach the dog but had to seek help from the Humane Society's emergency response team to get Hobo back to his place.
“ERT Technical Response Unit members rushed to the scene, setting up safety lines to rappel down the steep terrain. Five team members had to cut the dog from the brush with a saw before securing him for promotion,” the humane society's Facebook post said.
Hobo was reunited with his family at the end of the four-hour rescue.
