Rescue crews go the extra mile to save trapped dog

FRANKFORT, Ky. (WTVQ) – Frankfort Police and Frankfort Fire and EMS went to great lengths to save a dog that ended up trapped at the bottom of a ravine after a fall.

A passerby on Devil’s Hollow Road Wednesday heard a dog barking from the bottom of the ravine that runs next to the road, according to police.

Minutes after arriving on the scene, rescue crews found the dog that had fallen over a cliff, was trapped under a fallen tree and in distress, according to investigators.

Because of the steep terrain, rescue crews used ropes to climb down the hillside, freed the dog and loaded it onto a backboard. Ropes were used to lift the dog out to safety.

The dog was taken to Cornerstone Veterinary Clinic to be treated for her injuries, according to police.

Due to her advanced age and serious medical issues, the dog couldn’t be placed for adoption. One of the responding officers, Lieutenant Lynn Aubrey, agreed to provide hospice care for the dog at her home.
