Unusual rescue operation in Great Britain. A team of 13 mountain rescuers carried an injured dog on a stretcher from Scafell Pike, England’s highest peak. The operation lasted over four hours.

Mountain rescuers from Keswick Mountain Rescue received an unusual call on Saturday, May 13. They were called to a dog who had injured himself and could not get down Scafell Pike – England’s highest peak, the thirteenth highest in the British Isles.

Rescue operation in England

Weighing 33-kilograms, the owners were unable to bring or lift the dog themselves, so they asked specialists for help. A 13-member team took part in the action, which lasted four hours and 18 minutes. Rescuers placed the dog in a stretcher bag and carried it down the mountain. “Although it was quite a large dog (…), it was a pleasure to carry this victim. The injured man was calm and composed” – we read in a statement from Keswick Mountain Rescue.

It was not specified exactly what the dog’s injuries were or how they occurred. It was only reported that he was “wounded and exhausted” and that he “refused to move”.

This is another similar action on Scafell Pike

This isn’t the first time mountain rescuers have had to help a dog down Scafell Pike. In July 2020, they brought a St. Bernard dog named Daisy from there. The rescue operation then lasted five hours and involved 16 members of the Wasdale Mountain Rescue Team.
