Earlier this month, Tavistock Fire Station were called to Gulworthy along with the specialist rescue team from Camels Head, where a dog had fallen down a shaft whilst working in the woods.
Gem, a 6-year-old working spaniel, had fallen around 30 metres down a straight shaft. Nothing had been heard from the dog for some time and it couldn’t be seen from the top.
Crews set up specialist lines with a recovery system. A detector was sent down to test for any traces of gases before a firefighter was lowered in.
The dog was located at the base in an alcove and brought up to ground level using an animal rescue bag, where she was reunited with her relieved owner.
She appeared relatively well despite her fall and was then going to be taken to the vet to get checked over.
