A dog missing for two weeks was rescued from a ledge about 50 yards above a creek in Colorado, and is now home again.
On Monday, December 1st, a dog was rescued from Borden Beach in Manitou Springs by an animal control officer who rappelled down the side of the fence with a mountaineering harness and rope provided by a man living nearby.
The humane society said that the dog was identified through her chip and tag as as Jessie Lee. She crawled towards the officer but the ground began to slip out from under her.
The officer put a catchpole around the dog’s neck and shoulder to pull her closer so she wouldn’t fall. The humane society said that another officer lowered a second rope which was tied into a makeshift harness for the dog, and pulled them both up to safety.
The humane society said that Jessie Lee had been found by her owners, who had been looking for her every day since she went missing two weeks ago.
